|United Kingdom – Nigeria Infrastructure Advisory Facility (UKNIAF): Infrastructure Finance – Transaction Lead
Tetra Tech is delivering a major HMG funded infrastructure reform programme in Nigeria, UKNIAF. The work of the Infrastructure Finance team has two components: supporting selected state level PPP programmes through the transaction cycle; and supporting Federal Government counterparts to make better decisions on which infrastructure projects to support using objective decision support tools.
All UKNIAF’s work is climate smart and ICF funded. This means that the Infrastructure Finance support the programme puts forward must contribute to ICF KPIs.
The component is well established with a strong project pipeline and good institutional relationships at a Federal and state level. It now requires new leadership able to refine the strategic direction of the sector and drive up the quality of delivery.
