The objective of the proposed project is to support innovative financing instruments for catalyzing commercial financing to the urban sector. In the context of accessing finance, urban infrastructure funds (UIFs) or specialized infrastructure financing corporations (IFCs), will play a key role in leveraging financing from commercial financiers given the low capacity of ULBs. The market financing will require a commercial due diligence on UIFs and on the quality of underlying assets. This will demonstrate the extent of commercial viability of urban sector projects and the potential for leveraging private sector resources to fill the resources gap. The terms of commercial financing will also provide pricing benchmarks for the wider market and expand the viability of commercial financing instruments (including bond issuances).
