The Facility for Infrastructure Development ORIO is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. ORIO encourages public infrastructure development in developing countries, contributing to the realisation of good functioning, development relevant, public infrastructure in developing countries. Thus, ORIO aims to contribute to human development and private sector development.
Central governments of almost 50 countries on the ORIO country list may submit applications during the Calls for Proposals.
