30. July 2020. 2 p.m. Central European Summer Time/ 8 a.m. Eastern Standard Time

What is impeding the deployment of sustainable infrastructure? Despite all the rhetoric on sustainability and sustainable recovery from politicians, commentators, investors, project developers and citizens, sustainable infrastructure has yet to happen.

Howard Mann, Senior Law Adviser with IISD, shared observations on the flow of infrastructure capital. He will also advise on why the model public–private partnership (PPP) contracts promoted by multilateral development banks pose high risks for developing countries.

Bruno Alves, Senior Editor, Infrastructure Investor, told us more from the February 2020 issue on PPPs and why it may be “time to bin them.”

Motoko Aizawa, President of the Observatory for Sustainable Infrastructure. She explained why inclusiveness is fundamental to de-risking in a post-COVID setting.

The debate was moderated by Oshani Perera, Director Infrastructure, IISD.
