Impact Assessment

IFC Development Goals Overview - Infrastructure

    Description
    The IFC Development Goals (IDGs) are corporate-level development goals which IFC began testing in 2011. They were inspired by the Millennium Development Goals as a way to better integrate IFC’s results measurement with strategy.

    The IDGs are high-level targets for the incremental reach the IFC aims to achieve through its investments and advisory services. IFC aims to use the IDGs to drive implementation of strategy and influence operational decision making, alongside volume targets.

    IFC's contributions are counted as expected results at the time projects are committed or signed, and IFC’s regular monitoring and evaluation system tracks the results materializing during project implementation.

    Any IFC projects that help increase or improve infrastructure services to people, will contribute to the Infrastructure goal. These include but not limited to the following types of projects:

    Utilities
    • Electricity (generation, transmission, and distribution)
    • Gas (distribution)
    • Water and waste water (treatment and distribution)
    • Solid waste management

    Transport
    • Roads, airlines, airports, railways, and light rail
    • (ports and logistics companies are not included)
    Telecom and IT Services
    • Telephone and Internet – subscribers to telephony and broadband

    Off-grid renewable energy generation
    • Such as the provision of solar lanterns to areas with no or limited access to electricity
