Regional Roundtables on Infrastructure Governance
The Regional Roundtables on Infrastructure Governance program brings together government officials, the private sector, civil society and practitioners to create better approaches, standards, and tools that will improve infrastructure governance around the world. A series of regional roundtables comprise the core of the program.
Basic infrastructure services are scarce in many developing countries. Yet, the main impediment to investment, is not lack of financing, but of good governance. Globally, research shows we will have an infrastructure deficit of $57 trillion by 2030 making effective mobilization of infrastructure financing an imperative.
The program follows directly from the 2015 Addis Ababa Action Agenda on financing for development. It also comes in response to the recommendations of the Global Infrastructure Forum that took place in Washington DC in April 2017.
