ArmeniaIFC DevCo ("Infrastructure Development Collaboration Partnership Fund") is a transaction advisory facility, supporting governments in preparing and structuring infrastructure projects for private investments. More specifically, DevCo funding is used to allow direct marketing, planning and development of transactions. Moreover, DevCo often comes in when a poorly prepared and under-resourced initiative has failed. DevCo's biggest sectors of activity are energy and transport, accounting for almost 70% of its commitments. The Austrian contribution focusses on renewable energy and waste.Austria  International Finance Corporation (IFC)Adaptation 0.700EUR20122010-2011
