520    Although the importance of infrastructure sectors in 
       achieving economic growth and poverty reduction is well 
       established, raising debt and equity capital for 
       infrastructure development and service provision has been 
       a challenge for developing countries. Risk mitigation 
       instruments facilitate the mobilization of commercial debt
       and equity capital by transferring risks that private 
       financiers would not be able or willing to take to third-
       party official and private institutions that are capable 
       of taking such risks. There has been increasing interest 
       and discussion on risk mitigation instruments in the 
       context of infrastructure financing among developing 
       country governments, multi- and bilateral donors, and the 
       private sector. However, due to the complex and diverse 
       nature of risk mitigation instruments, what they can and 
       cannot offer and how they can best be utilized for 
       infrastructure financing are not well understood. 
520 80 The Review of Risk Mitigation Instruments for 
       Infrastructure Financing and Recent Trends and Development
       summarizes existing risk mitigation instruments-primarily 
       focusing on those offered by multilateral and bilateral 
       official agencies-and presents recent trends and 
       developments that make these guarantee and insurance 
       products valuable in securing financing for infrastructure
       projects in developing countries. Topics covered include: 
       descriptions of different types of risk mitigation 
       instruments, characteristics of multilateral, bilateral, 
       and private providers of risk mitigation instruments and 
       compatibility of instruments, recent developments and 
       innovative applications of risk mitigation instruments 
       through case transactions, areas that pose challenges to 
       the use of risk mitigation instruments as catalysts of 
       infrastructure development. Appendixes describe in detail 
       each transaction case and the risk mitigation instruments 
       offered by major multilateral and bilateral institutions. 
       This report will be of particular interest to readers 
       working in business and finance, law and regulation, and 
       infrastructure projects and finance.
