In both developed and emerging economies, regional and local governments may struggle to provide residents with reliable and affordable access to essential infrastructure. Addressing such subnational disparities and improving the social inclusivity of infrastructure is key to achieving a long-term and sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.
In February 2022, G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors agreed on the importance of developing “policies to mobilise inclusive infrastructure investment to enhance social inclusion and address subnational disparities in regions and cities.”
To support this objective, the GI Hub and International Finance Corporation are presenting our latest webinar in collaboration with the G20 Indonesian Presidency.
Join us for this session that will highlight solutions for governments and project proponents to mobilise private financing and inclusive infrastructure investment in order to reach vulnerable groups and underserved regions. Panellists will discuss:
- Approaches to unlock subnational and inclusive infrastructure investment while achieving sustainable development goals
- Ways to open new markets, address regional disparities, and promote sub-national infrastructure investment by leveraging international organisations
- Which funding and financing mechanisms can be used to enhance regional connectivity in underserved regions and promote inclusivity in infrastructure
- How the involvement of the private sector can help achieve the public sector’s broader sustainability objectives.
Each of the approaches and solutions will be illustrated with real project examples and expert perspectives.
