International Development & Infrastructure

Closing the 'infrastructure gap'

Since the 1990s global poverty levels have more than halved, and the global landscape has changed with the emergence of new ‘growth miracle markets’ in Africa and Asia. Despite this, significant challenges remain to achieve sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction. High amongst these is the significant 'infrastructure gap' in the financing and delivery of major capital projects in developing countries.

Closing this gap requires constructive collaboration between governments, donors and development agencies, private sector funders and project sponsors. Deloitte's International Development & Infrastructure capability provides clients with deep expertise in navigating the complexities of public and private investment in infrastructure in developing countries. We bring experience working across sectors, geographies and stages of the infrastructure lifecycle, from developing financing innovations to enhancing delivery capability in public institutions and the private sector supply chain for core infrastructure and capital projects.

We work with key infrastructure actors and market participants to find solutions for infrastructure development, including with:

  • Government ministries and public institutions
  • Donor and development agencies, including bilateral donors and multilateral development banks
  • Major project developers and private sector market participants
  • Private sector infrastructure funders
