    Assessment of the Impact of the Crisis on New PPI Projects - Update 4 : New Private Infrastructure Activity in Developing Countries Recovered in the First Half of 2009 Thanks to the Electricity Sector, But the Crisis Continues to Impact Projects
    (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2009-10) World Bank
    This review of new private participation in infrastructure (PPI) projects, covering the period up to June 2009, sheds some light on the recent activity and the short-term impact of the financial crisis, compared with the previous updates on the impact of the crisis, this note incorporates several improvements: a larger sample size (714 projects versus 522 in the previous update) over a longer period of time (from January 2008 to June 2009 compared to the previous update, which covered January 2008 to March 2009). The survey finds that the financial crisis significantly affected the rate of project closure rate of new PPI projects in the second half of 2008. The impact of the crisis varies across developing regions with Europe and Central Asia (ECA) being the most affected region so far. This analysis will be refined in the coming quarters to assess the extent to which these trends continue.

    Private Activity in Infrastructure Continued Its Recovery in 2006
    (Washington, DC, 2007-12) World Bank
    The report is about the private participation in infrastructure database. Private activity in infrastructure continued its recovery in 2006. The number of projects reaching financial or contractual closure also showed a recovery. The number of private infrastructure projects implemented in 2006 grew by 17 percent to 271 percent. Telecommunications played the biggest part in this: projects reaching closure in 2006 accounted for just 18 percent of the year's investment in the sector, while those closing in previous years represented 82 percent. The recovery in energy investment was driven by six large projects which accounted for 45 percent of commitments in 2006. Finally, new private activity in water focused on smaller projects. The report concludes, continuing the trend of the previous four years, private activity in 2006 was more evenly distributed across regions than it had been during the boom of the late 1990s.
