When the request concerns infrastructure projects, Proparco assesses, for example, the reliability and security of the technologies used and the contribution that projects make to improving access in a region (electricity or water supply, for example).

Every year, Proparco consolidates the results of signed operations in order to have an overall vision of its activity.
