Green Recovery and Finance for Sustainable Infrastructure

October 2021

This white paper addresses how public and private sector stakeholders can support the funding necessary to spur a green recovery by sufficiently funding the early stages of infrastructure project development (pre-development) to achieve sustainable outcomes.

Integrating sustainable infrastructure investments into government investments in infrastructure, especially with a specific focus on expected stimulus packages to mitigate the economic downturn from the Covid-19 pandemic, is key to building a sustainable and resilient future.

A key strategy to ensure sustainable outcomes from stimulus efforts and other planned infrastructure investments is to integrate pre-development funding for municipal, state and federal projects, as well as private sector project developers and multinational finance institutions.
