Independent evaluation of the development impact of the Private Infrastructure Development Group

The Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG) is an infrastructure development and finance organisation that encourages and mobilises private sector investment into infrastructure in the poorest and most fragile countries through a range of project development, capacity building and financial products. Itad is conducting an independent evaluation of PIDG's development impact.


PIDG companies, each of which focuses on different barriers to infrastructure investment, support infrastructure at various stages of the project cycle to deliver development impact. They develop local capacity and address gaps in financial markets.

PIDG focuses predominantly on sub-Saharan Africa and South and Southeast Asia. They operate across a range of sectors: agribusiness, transportation, water, sewerage and sanitation, capital market development, digital communications infrastructure, energy, manufacturing and social infrastructure.

We are conducting an in-depth assessment of PIDG’s overall development impact in four countries, establishing what results and impact they have achieved and how.

The evaluation is using a contribution analysis approach that builds on PIDG’s own Theory of Change. In the country evaluations, we will use a range of data collection and analysis methods, which are likely to include CGE modeling.
