Building a Better Future

What should MDBs do to ensure development of low-carbon sustainable infrastructure for global economic recovery?

Perhaps more than in any other previous global crisis in recent memory, there is widespread consensus amongst decision-makers in both developed and emerging markets that infrastructure investment holds the key to global economic recovery. At the same time, we are also acutely aware of the urgency to manage the other looming crisis: Climate Change.

Many Governments, especially in the developing world, are already over-stretched financially, and lack the capacity to implement the scale of investment needed to simultaneously recharge the economic recovery and battle climate change. MDBs will be needed more than ever to both provide much needed investment, with a strong tilt to green, as well as to mobilise the private sector to ensure a more resilient future is secured as we emerge from the crisis into 2021 and beyond.

This opening webinar of the GI Forum includes a dialogue between high level representatives of the private sector, Government and MDBs to deliver clear messages to the MDB community and beyond on navigating these key challenges ahead.
