Isis Development (Implementing Sustainable Infrastructure Solutions for Development) is a consulting firm specialized in infrastructure projects development based on Public-Private Partnerships in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The core objective of Isis Development is to engage the strengths and the methodology of the private sector to contribute to the economic and social development of the countries in which they are effective.
Beyond mere “Corporate Social Responsibility”, Isis Development strongly committed to improving people’s living conditions through the implementation of major projects in three key areas for development : energy, education and health.
The States concerned by those issues have been facing great challenges, but often have limited resources to tackle them. Isis Development provides assistance for administrations in the implementation of their projects in an efficient, ethical, and sustainable way.
Project development is a hands-on expertise, which is why Isis Development offers to put its competencies at their disposal, according to each stakeholder’s needs.
To Public institutions, we offer consultations in project design. Once the project is modelized, we are in charge of conducting feasibility studies, the legal and financial aspects of the project, as well as its building and operational management.
To Innovative companies, we propose to study how technical solutions and/or models can create the basis for a Public-Private Partnership. Additionally, we deal with contract negotiations between public authorities and funding institutions.
To Private and public equity funds, we offer a project portfolio, rates of return of which are adapted and projets developed according to the requirements of the main financing institutions. This way we facilitate due diligence and optimize the structuring of the debt.
The needs for infrastructures in Sub-Saharan Africa are substantial. In the last few years, initiatives to answer those needs have increased in a booming market.
However, many of them have failed due to the misunderstanding of the basic, country-specific, necessities in project development, as well as the lack of coordination among stakeholders.
Isis Development’s method therefore relies on its project development expertise, combined with a holistic local presence, grounded on solid networks of local actors.
Furthermore, Isis Development ensures the linking and coordination of the key actors of the project, who are involved as upstream as possible in the process.
For each project, Isis Development calls upon internationally recognized law firms, financial analysts, and design firms. It works in a collaborative and dynamic process with financing institutions.
