How does the initiative try to reach its objective?

The Portal aims to address the information-sharing and coordination gap by improving the accessibility and visibility of useful tools & resources and technical support available to assist governments in the investment process. It includes a Roadmap of the investment process, a searchable database of the major Support Providers, a searchable list of useful online Tools & Resources, and a list of Trainings such as short courses and professional development courses.

While the primary audience for the Portal is government officials, policy makers and their advisors, the information contained in the Portal may also be useful for civil society and other stakeholders who want to learn more about the investment process, and how to monitor the implementation of investment projects.
