Infrastructure Investment Fund

The overall objective of this program is to help the Government of NEPAL facilitate long term financing for infrastructure by establishing a well-structured Infrastructure Investment Fund that creates access to long term financing by crowding-in private sector sources to support infrastructure and PPP projects. The proposed facility, once established and operational, would be expected to:

  • Attract domestic and international fund flows to infrastructure
  • Operate on commercial and independent basis, while meeting development objectives of NEPAL
  • Facilitate PPP deals including Joint Ventures (JV) and Special Purpose Vehicles (SPV) by mitigating financing risks 
  • Provide targeted financing products (debt, equity, mezzanine, contingent support, etc.) to address specific market failures
  • Improve market capacity on project appraisal and commercial risk pricing 
  • Signal market confidence in the Government’s commitment to its infrastructure agenda
