This report aims to 1) assess the global run for infrastructure finance and 2) the tendency of its
financialisation, 3) explain the main mechanisms for indebtedness of mega-infrastructure projects and
their risks especially for impoverished countries, 4) raise the question of illegitimacy of debt, also
considering the creation of other debts such as ecological and gender debt, 5) provide concluding
remarks and 6) evaluate the need of mega-infrastructure projects, presenting alternatives. Finally we
will give 7) policy recommendations.
