PRI webinar: Improving infrastructure project preparation and access to critical data to foster long-term investment

Background: “From 2016 through 2030, the world needs to invest about 3.8 percent of GDP, or an average of $3.3 trillion a year, in economic infrastructure […] But if the current trajectory of underinvestment continues, the world will fall short by roughly 11 percent, or $350 billion a year. The size of the gap triples if we consider […] the new UN Sustainable Development Goals.” 

McKinsey Global Institute (2016) Bridging Global Infrastructure Gaps
 
A key requirement to increase flows of private capital into infrastructure is high-quality preparation of infrastructure projects by public sector institutions. In response to calls from the G20, the Sustainable Infrastructure Foundation’s (SIF) SOURCE platform provides just that – an online system to help governments and private investors prepare, select, coordinate, fund, finance and monitor infrastructure projects. Since SOURCE was launched in 2015, 144 projects have been uploaded to the system. Each one provides key information on the technical specifications of projects, as well as their ESG profile. 

Join us on this webinar to find out: 
  • Why has SOURCE been created? 
  • How can the platform help long-term investors with infrastructure opportunities? 
  • How can the platform help investors with their ESG integration procedures? 
  • Hear case studies from investors, MDBs and government about how they use the platform. 

Speakers include:

  • Moderated by: Archie Beeching, Head of Real Assets, PRI 
  • Laurence Carter, Senior Director, Public-Private Partnerships, World Bank 
  • Christophe Dossarps, CEO, Sustainable Infrastructure Foundation (SIF) 
  • Rana Ghorayeb, Vice-President and Head of Infrastructure Transactions, Europe and the Americas, la Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec
  • Chidi Izuwah, Executive Director, PPP Resource Centre, the Presidency, Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission, Nigeria
