Governments play a central role in infrastructure development. Donor governments provide funding to developing countries to finance infrastructure projects. Developing countries may fund infrastructure projects through their own resources as well as development aid. Aid can be bilateral – given from one country to another directly, or multilateral – given to an organisation like the Asian Development Bank or the World Bank for distribution among a number of developing countries. Both donor and developing member countries determine and shape infrastructure development projects. Each bears a responsibility to ensure that the benefits of such projects are equally distributed and that unintended impacts are not borne by vulnerable communities.
