Project finance in developing countries by Priscilla Anita Ahmed( Book )

15 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report explores the changing face of project finance in developing markets. IFC, and more recently, other multilateral, bilateral, and export credit institutions have played a strong suportive role in bringing project finance to its current volumes. This role was highlighted in 1998, when these institutions sustained flows of an estimated $25 billion at a time when there was an abrupt decline in some types of private flows. IFC, in particular, was a pioneer of project finance in developing countries and has a unique depth of experience in this field, which spans more than 40 years in the practical implementation of some 2000 projects, many of them on a limited-recourse basis. Particularly in today's marketplace, IFC's ability to mobilize finance (both loan and equity for its own account and syndicated loans under its B-loan program), the strength of iis project appraisal capabilities, and its experience in structuring complex transactions in difficult environments have been reassuring to other participants and important to the successful financing of many projects. This report draws on IFC's experience in more than 230 greenfield projects costing upward of $30 billion that relied on project finance on a limited-recourse basis (see Appendix A). It opens with a brief description of the major international trends in project finance over the past two decades and then turns to the essential ingredients of successful project financing."--Publisher abstract

Reforming the investment climate : lessons for practitioners by Sunita Kikeri( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most people agree that a good investment climate is essential for growth and poverty reduction. Less clear is how to achieve it. Many reforms are complex, involving more than technical design and content. They are both political, facing opposition from organized and powerful groups-and institutionally demanding, cutting across different departments and levels of government. Reform thus requires paying as much attention to understanding the politics and institutional dimensions as to policy substance, which is the goal of this paper. Drawing from more than 25 case studies, it shows that there is no single recipe or "manual" for reform, given diverse contexts and serendipity in any reform effort. But three broad lessons emerge. The first is to recognize and seize opportunities for reform. Crisis and new governments are important catalysts, but so is the competition generated by trade integration and new benchmarking information. The second is to invest early in the politics of reform. Central to this process is using education and persuasion strategies to gain wider acceptance and neutralize opponents. Pilot programs can be valuable for demonstrating the benefits and feasibility of change. And the third is to pay greater attention to implementation and monitoring. This does not require full scale public management reforms. Reformers can draw on private sector change management techniques to revitalize public institutions responsible for implementation. Given the cross-cutting nature of reform, new oversight mechanisms may be needed to monitor and sustain reform. The paper concludes with an emerging checklist for reformers and identifies areas for future work
