The GI Hub strongly believes in the importance and value of collaboration across the infrastructure community to achieve common goals for better quality infrastructure.
As a global entity, independent of commercial objectives, we are uniquely positioned to create connections and help foster collaboration across the public and private sectors, academia, development banks, and other international organisations. Our connection with the G20 further increases the visibility of our work and its impact.
There are many ways to connect and collaborate with us, as an individual or organisation. We welcome you to learn more about us and get involved through any of the opportunities highlighted below.
The GI Hub convenes expert engagement groups to share perspectives, advise, and collaborate on issues that have global impacts. Although participation in these groups is by invitation, we encourage individuals and organisations who are interested in getting involved to contact us.
The I-Body Forum brings together I-Bodies from around the world to address common challenges, share experiences, and accelerate the adoption of best practice.

The Infrastructure Regulations Advisory Council (IRAC) is composed of members from leading commercial banks that are financing infrastructure worldwide. This diverse group is dedicated to examining the conduciveness of regulatory frameworks for infrastructure investments and recommending prudent reforms to address the regulatory roadblocks. The IRAC is actively working to advance the GI Hub’s mission to close infrastructure investment deficits that curtail the achievement of sustainable development and climate goals, while maintaining financial stability.

‘Innovating Infrastructure’ is the GI Hub’s podcast that showcases discussions on topics and innovations related to advancing the delivery of sustainable, resilient, and inclusive infrastructure. We collaborate with the public and private sectors to produce insights that help improve infrastructure delivery and decisionmaking and promote the adoption and development of InfraTech. To listen to our podcast, go here.
Many of the challenges that arise in infrastructure delivery stem from the selection of the delivery model at an early-stage. How can we improve the way we deliver infrastructure?
Season two of Innovating Infrastructure explores answers to that very question. Over six 25-minute episodes GI Hub’s Michael Twycross draws on insights from our Improving Delivery Models initiative and speaks with global infrastructure leaders to unpack themes that capture improvements to infrastructure delivery. Listen here.
Discover new and emerging technology-based solutions for more resilient infrastructure. This ten-part series includes interviews with start-ups, entrepreneurs and founders who share insights into their innovations, technology and solutions.
Hosted by GI Hub’s Monica Bennett, each episode is 25-minute’s and showcases finalists from GI Hub’s InfraChallenge, a global innovation competition that helps start-ups advance their solutions. Listen here.
Developed by the GI Hub, Meridiam, and the World Economic Forum, the AIFP trains African civil servants in infrastructure procurement and delivery. Participants receive tailored training delivered by academic experts and infrastructure professionals, and can undertake hands-on learning in a private sector sponsor organisation.

In our role supporting the G20’s infrastructure agenda, the GI Hub is acting on the G20 Eminent Persons Group recommendation of a case for infrastructure as an asset class, distinct from generic corporate exposures with its own differentiated risk profile. We're uniquely positioned to act as a trusted facilitator in private and public sector consideration of this issue.
