The NIIMP consists of six parts:
- The national vision that sets the overall direction for the master plan. This section lays out the overall infrastructure stock required, linked to national objectives such as GDP growth. It also outlines the overall investments required in infrastructure over the next 30 years, and the expected financing required for these investments.
- Sector strategies for each NIIMP sector (‘Transport’, ‘Energy’, ‘ICT’, ‘Agriculture, Water and Mining’, ‘Housing’, ‘Social Infrastructure’ and ‘Vital Registration and Security’). This section describes the current state of infrastructure at a detailed sector level, lays out the objectives of each sector and its infrastructure stock targets as well as concrete outcome targets. This section also lays out the required infrastructure investments for each sector over 5, 10 and 30 year time horizons based on analysis done.
- Regional strategies. This section describes the current state and economic priorities of the regions and how these translate into infrastructure investment targets.
- Prioritised project portfolios. This section lists the prioritised project portfolios that should receive extra focus over the next 5 years. A project prioritisation framework has been developed to rank projects.
- Financing plan. This section describes the options to finance the required infrastructure investments. This includes the capacity of the government to finance investments through current accounts or public debt, and a potential approach to increase the share of private sector investments through PPPs by creating a supportive enabling environment.
- Implementation plan. This section describes the actions required to successfully implement the master plan. This covers short-term and medium- term initiatives including, legal and regulatory changes; budget process changes; incentives and supporting environment for promoting private sector investment; requirements for ICT platforms to support information coordination, harmonisation and stock-keeping (including geo-positioning and satellite mapping of infrastructure); monitoring and evaluation processes to follow up on implementation progress.
