TF3: Infrastructure Investment and Financing

TF3: Infrastructure Investment and Financing
Description​

Public and private investment in infrastructure is needed to meet the increasing demand for infrastructure globally and to reduce the infrastructure gap between advanced and emerging economies. Many countries need better access to basic services and global connectivity needs to be improved. Financing such large-scale projects and promoting climate-resilient and sustainable infrastructure investment remain key challenges.

This task force aims to promote a discussion of the key barriers to and opportunities for improving public and private infrastructure investment. It will identify which public policy changes are necessary to boost infrastructure investment. The task force will also examine the essential role of the private sector in providing long-term finance and consider innovative frameworks that help bridge the infrastructure investment gap within and among countries. It will also identify and evaluate infrastructure needs and opportunities for investment based on their efficiency, sustainability, and economic development.

  • Innovative frameworks to bridge the infrastructure investment gap
  • Promoting infrastructure investments that are resilient, sustainable and can adjust to climate effects
  • Technology innovation for smart cities
  • Challenges of rapid urbanization
