Parallel Panel: Bridging the Urban Investment Gap

The enormous need for large-scale investments in infrastructure to support the global urban boom is clear, quantified and well documented. It is estimated that global spending on basic infrastructure is currently short of US$1 trillion. The missing piece is matching resources with needs and ensuring incentives and institutions are aligned to enable the release of funding. How can cities address the urban investment gap? What are successful, pragmatic, innovative financing mechanisms that target urgent urban development priorities?

This session will take place in the Plenary Hall.
