As countries announce major infrastructure packages to stimulate their post-pandemic recovery, the sector faces two substantial and related challenges: climate change and a funding shortfall, writes Marie Lam-Frendo, Chief Executive Officer of the Global Infrastructure Hub.
In 2021, the Global Infrastructure Hub published the findings of a survey of G20 members that collected case studies and examples of projects or programs that demonstrate the benefits of QII or exemplify good practice in their countries or in recipient countries. This survey was undertaken at the request of the G20 Infrastructure Working Group (IWG). It can be accessed here.
The discount rate used for project selection varies widely between developed and developing countries, and international institutions from 3% to 15%. The environmental, social and environmental benefits of transformative infrastructure projects are often not comprehensively captured.
carbon emissions in the 44 Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Group of Twenty (G20) countries were priced at EUR 30 per tonne of carbon dioxide (CO2), the minimum price level to start triggering meaningful abatement efforts. An increase in effective carbon rates by EUR 10 per tonne CO2 is estimated to reduce emissions by 7.3% on average over time.
In 2018, the City of Nice in southern France signed a 25 year contract with IDEX to design, finance, realise, operate, and maintain a heating and cooling network as well as to implement a smart grid for energy efficiency. IDEX is implementing this project in the 500,000m2 Nice Meridia district, which is home to office space, retail, leisure, housing, schools, and a hospital.
Delivering quality infrastructure will increasingly become a key priority for governments globally, requiring substantial investment from both the public and the private sectors.
InfraChallenge 2021 invited ideas for building and maintaining better, more resilient infrastructure. Today we announce the Top 10 competitors.
Infrastructure projects are capital-intensive and emerging countries often rely on private investment to implement them. As projects generate revenues in local currency (usually escalated by local inflation), the mismatch between the revenues and the debt service in foreign currency represents a major risk. Without a reliable mechanism to properly mitigate the foreign exchange (FX) risk, relevant sources of potentially long-term and less expensive funding are not accessible. A deep assessment of the FX risk and the development of innovative mitigatory solutions is critical to amplify the offer of long-term credit facilities for infrastructure financing.
