Investments in critical infrastructure including roads, airports, seaports, and power plants promote trade and regional connectivity—creating jobs and fostering economic growth.

Critical Infrastructure and energy are central to a country’s prosperity and stability. Yet many developing countries face significant infrastructure gaps and energy poverty due to the substantial capital that these large-scale projects require.

DFC is committed to supporting investments in critical infrastructure and energy projects such as roads, ports, airports, power plants, transmission lines, and more. By strengthening connectivity and increasing energy supply, these projects facilitate trade and investment, create jobs, and improve access to clean water, food, healthcare, energy, and education.

Through Blue Dot Network, the United States—led by DFC—is collaborating with allies around the globe to promote quality infrastructure investments by certifying projects that adhere to high standards and build a strong foundation for lasting prosperity and stability.
