VISION TO PROGRAM TO PROJECTS (V2P2P): TOOLS

What are the tools available to policymakers for taking cross-border infrastructure connectivity projects from initial vision through to implementation? GICA's V2P2P Framework tools help policymakers and practitioners plan, develop, finance, and implement successful connectivity infrastructure investments. 

V2P2P Framework Tools

Moving infrastructure connectivity projects from a Vision to a Program to Projects starts with infrastructure planning, then moves through the phases of creating an enabling environment for infrastructure investments, prioritizing projects, and conducting the project transaction — before ending in project implementation. GICA's V2P2P Framework Tools highlight the various tools available, to help policymakers at each phase. The tools assist practitioners to plan, develop, finance, and implement successful connectivity infrastructure investments.

1. Infrastructure Planning

Good infrastructure projects start with detailed planning at the country and sector levels. The tools and resources in this section, provided by GICA members and other thought leaders, support connectivity infrastructure sector planning topics, such as technical assistance diagnostics for understanding infrastructure needs or developing a sector master plan.

See how Infrastructure Planning tools have been used successfully in the field, or examples of analytical products/sectoral toolkits, which could be deployed by various countries for this phase:

    Provided by the World Bank Group either in the form of loans, credits or grants, Development Policy Financing (DPF) provides financing to help address actual or anticipated development financing requirements.

3. Project Prioritization and Screening

With constraints on public budgets, how can a government prioritize infrastructure connectivity projects and identify the most viable investments? In the third phase of the V2P2P framework, the tools and resources provided by GICA members and other thought leaders, offer guidance for developing prioritized or screened connectivity projects, including ways to determine suitability for commercial financing.

4. Project Transaction Support

The tools and resources in this fourth phase of the V2P2P framework drill down to the individual project level and help to assess a project's technical, commercial, and legal requirements. Both funding and advisory resources and facilities from GICA members and other thought leaders are featured, which assist with analyzing and structuring projects in order to best attract funding and/or financing.
