2021 G20 Infrastructure Investors Dialogue


Financing Sustainable Infrastructure for the Recovery

3 June 2021 | Virtual Conference

Infrastructure is a crucial element in all aspects of economic and social activities, and is essential to the quality of life, the green transition and successful sustainable development.

Despite broad recognition of the need for more and better quality infrastructure investment, in recent years, public and private investment has seen a declining trend, which has particularly affected social infrastructure. As a result, the infrastructure investment gap is set to reach $15 trillion by 2040, and is expected to be even higher if sustainable infrastructure needs – especially in developing and emerging countries – are not adequately taken into account.

Against this background, the 2021 G20 Infrastructure Investors Dialogue held under the Italian G20 Presidency in collaboration with the OECD and D20 Long-Term Investor Club, advanced the proposals found in the G20/OECD Report on the Collaboration with Institutional Investors and Asset Managers on Infrastructure and supported ongoing collaboration between the public and private sectors to unlock further investment and sustainability, particularly in light of the role of quality infrastructure investment for the recovery.

This event highlighted existing initiatives and good practices of governments, the private sector, multilateral and national development banks, and international organisations in supporting private investor involvement in infrastructure and managing related risks, including those related to ESG. The high-level roundtable discussion was  followed by seminar sessions on: 1) mobilising private financing for sustainable infrastructure, and 2) risk mitigation, bundling of projects and ESG risk assessment in infrastructure financing.
