What is impeding the deployment of sustainable infrastructure? Despite all the rhetoric on sustainability and sustainable recovery from politicians, commentators, investors, project developers and citizens, sustainable infrastructure has yet to happen.
Howard Mann, Senior Law Adviser, at IISD will share observations on the flow of infrastructure capital. He will also advise on why the model public–private partnership (PPP) contracts promoted by multilateral development banks pose high risks for developing countries.
Motoko Aizawa, Expert on Business and Human Rights, shares perspectives on why environmental impact assessments are simply not enough to deploy sustainable infrastructure. She will show us why inclusiveness is fundamental to de-risking in a post-COVID setting.
The debate will be moderated by Oshani Perera, Director Infrastructure, IISD.
