Objective of the stream

The Work Stream (WS) was formally established after the 2019 Annual Meeting in Madrid and is chaired by Patrick Mabuza of AfDB.

The strategic aim of the Infrastructure Services WS is to ensure that HIPSO has an updated and good scope of infrastructure services related metrics that are fit for purpose in the development impact landscape. In addition, the Stream aims to collect, share and elaborate knowledge about infrastructure related issues, and to develop products for DFIs and other private sector development practitioners.


  • Draft and update the HIPSO infrastructure services metrics as needed.
  • Coordinate with other initiatives around infrastructure services to promote harmonization approaches
    around metrics and other topical issues.
  • Generate and share knowledge on topical issues around topical infrastructure services in private
    sector development.
