The Business for SDGs Roundtable on Infrastructure
April 21, 2017 @ 8:15 am - 1:30 pm
Since the global adoption of the U.N. Agenda for 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the international community has turned its attention to implementation, and the resources from governments and business required to set the SDGs into motion.
In this regard, a pressing priority across all 17 SDGs is upgrading and building infrastructure for sustainable development.
The Roundtable participants will discuss:
- where and how business is already planning for and investing in infrastructure for sustainability, what are the enabling frameworks, policies and
- partnerships that can be scaled for impact;
- what new sources and approaches exist to mobilize resources and advance bankable projects for sustainability infrastructure; and
- which indicators to use to measure and report impacts of infrastructure investments by the private sector.
Both “hard” and “soft” forms of infrastructure have also figured prominently in the U.N. Financing for Development (FfD) process. The USCIB Roundtable will immediately precede the FfD Infrastructure Forum, and inform recommendations by USCIB to the U.N. High Level Political Forum meetings in July when they review SDG actions by governments, business and others.
