Investments in critical infrastructure can promote trade and regional connectivity, create jobs, and foster economic growth in developing countries.

Critical infrastructure is central to a country’s prosperity and stability. Yet many countries face significant energy poverty and physical infrastructure gaps due to the substantial capital required for large-scale projects.

DFC is helping businesses build infrastructure in developing countries across the world, from Africa, Latin America, and the Indo-Pacific to the Middle East and Eastern Europe and Eurasia.

Our investments in roads, ports, airports, and other large-scale projects are helping facilitate trade, create jobs, and improve access to essential services such as clean water, food, healthcare, energy, and education.

DFC's investments are helping advance the Build Back Better World (B3W) Initiative, which aims to mobilize private sector capital for infrastructure projects in four key areas: climate change mitigation and adaptation, global health, gender equity and equality, and information and communications technology.
