The recording is now available for the GI Hub and International Finance Corporation (IFC) webinar ‘Green recovery for cities: What role can the private sector play’, the second in the series New Deals: Funding solutions for the future of infrastructure.
The discussion explored green recovery solutions and highlighted lessons learnt from two projects:
The Belgrade Waste-to-Energy Project is cleaning up one of Europe’s largest uncontrolled landfills and constructing a new, sustainable waste-management complex. It is one of the first large-scale, bankable, private sector waste-to-energy projects in emerging markets.
Despite abundant surface freshwater, only 84% of Brazil’s people have access to potable water, and only 50% have access to sewerage. The Corsan Water Supply, Efficiency, and Resilience Project is leveraging private financing to address losses in water distribution and mitigate climate change risks.
