The new handbook, Understanding Power Project Financing, is the culmination of months of consultations with public and private sector stakeholders from Africa, the United States and Europe. The handbook is intended to provide decision-makers with an overview of the structuring of private investment and financing for power projects and insight into the important supporting role that governments play.
