Cities Alliance, GPOBA and PPIAF Support to Developing Countries

Cities Alliance, the Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility (PPIAF), and the Global Partnership on Output-Based Aid (GPOBA) are multi-donor trust funds housed at the World Bank. All three can provide assistance to cities and municipalities in developing countries to help address the demands of rapid urbanization to deliver essential infrastructure and related services (roads, urban transport, water supply, drains, sewers, etc.) to rapidly growing populations. In particular, they can help sub-national governments access financing throughout the various stages of infrastructure development. This note provides an overview of each trust fund.
