Time for a big push on infrastructure in Africa: What the G-20 can do

It committed the G-20 countries to overcoming obstacles to infrastructure investment, developing project pipelines, improving capacity and facilitating finance, in particular for low-income countries. Estimates of total infrastructure financing needs in developing countries amount to over $1.2 trillion per year, with $93 billion for sub-Saharan Africa alone."
