New Handbook from GIZ on Financing Local Infrastructure
[10 January 2013] -- Financing Local Infrastructure – Linking Local Governments and Financial Markets addresses capacity development needs from both a public finance and a financial market perspective. Its purpose is to help partners, their advisors, local governments and financial institutions to explore the ways and the means by which local infrastructure can be financed.
Published by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), this handbook presents a hands-on guide to a better understanding and assessment of framework conditions. It enables more informed decisions to be made in terms of developing and supporting financing options for local services and infrastructure provision involving the local financial sector.
More information on GIZ’s work in the field of Decentralisation and Sustainable Urban Development as well as Public Finance and Administration can be found at http://www.giz.de/en/ourservices/governance_and_democracy.html.
