Infrastructure

Economies rely on infrastructure to support supply chains and move goods domestically and internationally, power businesses and homes, and provide critical services such as healthcare and education. Infrastructure development also provides jobs from construction to implementation. Around the world, there is a large gap between needed infrastructure and bankable projects. CLDP works with the United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA), the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), and other stakeholders in this space to assist foreign partners in developing bankable infrastructure projects. CLDP implements infrastructure projects in Peru, in Sub-Saharan Africa through Power Africa, and in South and Southeast Asia under the Infrastructure Transaction and Assistance Network (ITAN).

Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs)

PPPs are long-term contracts between a private party and a government entity for providing a public asset or service. PPPs transfer risk on a sliding scale based on which party is best suited to handle the risk. CLDP works with governments to help them design legislation, regulations, and model contracts for PPPs. CLDP also provides technical assistance to governments in understanding PPP structures, how to run a PPP tender and evaluate bids, and how to negotiate contracts.
