GI Forum 2018 Session 3

Good Practices in Scaling Up Investments in Infrastructure: Sustainability and Governance

This session will focus on emerging global, national, and sub-regional institutional arrangements (standards, agreements, policies, laws, and regulations) that will enhance infrastructure sustainability. It will present lessons learned about the linkages between infrastructure sustainability and governance, identify measures and good practices to monitor and evaluate social and environmental impacts throughout the project lifecycle, build on and consolidate joint MDB work on ensuring good governance for delivering infrastructure projects, and discuss approaches the MDBs can take to strengthen different aspects of sustainability, ensure collaboration and harmonization in project preparation, including new standards and principles, and delivering institutional, financial and operational support for sustainable infrastructure.
