Enhancing Connectivity through Transport Infrastructure: The Role of Official Development Finance and Private Investment
0 bytes •
Cross-border or long-distance roads and railways as well as international ports and airports are needed to move products and people around in a globalised world. The OECD recently published a report, "Enhancing Connectivity Transport Infrastructure: The Role of Official Development Finance and Private Investment", which takes stock of continental and regional transport plans in developing countries and examines strategies and activities of bilateral and multilateral development partners in supporting them. It also takes a hard look at the allocation of Official Development Finance for transport connectivity (USD 15 billion in 2014/15), particularly in relation to the distribution of private investment (USD 52 billion). Furthermore, the report features 16 profiles of development partners in enhancing transport connectivity—including China and its Belt and Road Initiative—with food for thought on what can be done to move forward.
