One of the main ways in which economies develop, is through large scale Infrastructure Development.
Generally, a government backed entity, puts out a Request For Proposal (or RFP) requesting the Market to build the infrastructure required.
The government backed entity then offers a long term off-take agreement in order that the infrastructure project can be compensated for delivering the infrastructure objective.
This off-take could be in the form of payment for electricity generated by a power plant, payment for water delivered by a pipeline, or toll fees for a road built.
With an offtake agreement, comes requirements for commitments from the infrastructure developer to provide for the growth of the local economy for the life of the given project. These commitments could include:
The monitoring of these ecomomic development commitments is generally mandatory.
