IPFA is a global, not-for-profit association for organisations involved in infrastructure and energy.
It has as its members the key players within the industry, across both the public and the private sector, including financial institutions, project sponsors, operators, law firms and construction companies as well as government departments, local authorities and PPP units from around the world.
Established in 1998, IPFA was initially created with the aim of raising awareness and understanding of project finance and PPPs and their crucial role in economic development. Over the past twenty years, IPFA has developed with the market to cover not only project finance but also infrastructure and energy in a broader sense. It remains, however, an independent body dedicated to promoting the interests of its members.
The principle objectives of IPFA are:
- To encourage networking and dialogue between the public and private sector.
- To provide up-to-date information on best practice, industry trends and new developments that can be applied to projects immediately.
By successfully achieving these goals since its inception, IPFA has created a truly integrated working relationship with both the private and public sector on a local, national and global scale.
