Short Description:

Overall goal

Die Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG) ist eine Gruppe gleich gesinnter bi- und multilateraler Geber, die zur Erreichung der UN Millennium Entwicklungsziele (MDGs) private Investitionen für pro-poor Infrastrukturmaßnahmen mobilisiert und dafür eine Reihe innovativer Fazilitäten entwickelt hat. Die Gruppe wurde 2002 gegründet und umfasst derzeit DFID (UK), SIDA (Schweden), SECO (Schweiz), DGIS (Niederlande), die Weltbankgruppe und seit Juli 2006 die ADA (Österreich). Infolge ihres Beitritts zu PIDG im Juli 2006 übernimmt die ADA nun die Verpflichtung, anteilig zu den allgemeinen Administrations- und Projektentwicklungskosten von PIDG beizutragen. Durch das gegenständliche Grant Agreement mit dem PIDG Trust, verpflichtet sich die ADA als neues Mitglied, ihren Beitrag zu diesen Kosten für den Zeitraum von 2006-8 zu erbringen.
