This Railway Financing Online Course aims to provide an easy comprehensible overview of railway financing methods and engagement with the private sector. The three modules of the course thoroughly explain the difference between funding and financing, the funding gap and how it can be addressed, financing types and financial instruments, and the role of risk and risk mitigation. These issues are explained using examples from the railway sector with links to more detailed readings on key topics.
The course should be particularly useful to railways or those supporting railways seeking to attract private sector financing to understand the policy actions needed to prepare railways for private sector financing as well as the mechanism that railways can use to attract this financing.
