In December 2017, the ICED facility hosted a number of Quarterly Lessons Learnt (QLL) sessions. Attached are slides presented at a session on infrastructure investment in FCAS.

Are there things you can do to raise private finance for infrastructure in conflict affected countries?

The session presented and contrasted profiles of different fragile states from the perspective of private investment in infrastructure.

Discussion covered the large variation in the types of investment that FCAS environments attract at different stages of conflict/post conflict recovery, and the implications for DFID programming. It also characterised different types of infrastructure investor (including those specialising in certain sectors), their varying appetite for risk and what they require to mitigate it.
