IFN Infrastructure & Project Finance 2023

Infrastructure development is at the heart of economic growth and nation-building. Unfortunately, there remains a huge funding and investment gap, exacerbated by the limited sources of traditional funding, particularly from the public sector. The World Bank estimates that some US$1.3 trillion is needed every year to meet infrastructure demand in emerging markets alone.

This presents an immense opportunity for Islamic finance, especially when the role of the private sector in addressing this funding gap can no longer be denied. Project and infrastructure finance is also taking an interesting turn as the call for green and resilience infrastructure rings louder than ever as governments tackle their climate goals.
