Does the Funding of Infrastructure Projects Have a Tangible Benefit for Development?

While it is true that infrastructure grants are not usually quick-win grants and they often have a higher risk attached to them, they can be of significant value to the development sector, as a recent Anglo American Chairman’s Fund review revealed.
