D) lateral agencies, international financial institutions and multilateral banks, export credit agencies (political risk coverage)
E) Alternative financing options, i.e. project leasing (in countries with favourable tax regimes), project bonds, municipal bonds

Research two of these infrastructure financing options and give an example where they have been recently used. Evaluate the appropriateness of each option, including the advantages and disadvantages (700 words).
2) Add your brief (100 words) perspective on the appropriateness, including the advantages and disadvantages, of one or more infrastructure financing options.
