Public investment is 83% of all investment in infrastructure, and lack of data about how this investment is prioritised and allocated impedes private participation and investment. The GI Hub’s InfraTracker is the first annual tracker of public investment in infrastructure for the G20.

In this article, the authors explore the successes and failures of the built environment’s digital transformation to date, why the Smart City concept is necessary but not sufficient and 3 steps for achieving the Adaptive City of the future – one which works for everyone.
The credit risk metrics for infrastructure debt improved during the COVID-19 pandemic, while those for non-infrastructure debt worsened. The performance of infrastructure loans demonstrates that infrastructure assets are resilient to adverse economic scenarios like pandemics.

The GI Hub’s InfraTracker aims to help address this data gap by analysing public investment data presented in G20 government budgets
Comparison of InfraTracker data with private investment figures in Infrastructure Monitor also indicate that, in general, governments are the driver of investment in all infrastructure sectors except for energy.
Infrastructure investment undoubtedly has a strong impact on economic growth and development.
"We have multiple gaps to fund, requiring not billions, but trillions"
Transformative changes are needed to unlock infrastructure financing and fill multiple gaps in financing climate, biodiversity, and infrastructure gtargets.
This article breaks down the blockers to InfraTech adoption and why they occur. Use this article to deepen your understanding of the repercussions of problems like poorly defined value cases and disparate interests among parties across the timeline.
In 2022, infrastructure assets improved their ESG scores in all three pillars of ESG. The scores are encouraging, but they do not mean the assets themselves are more sustainable.
This article reviews five economic shocks that are worsening the bankability of new infrastructure projects, and eight approaches to improve bankability and get projects off the ground.

The Coalition for Climate Resilient Investment (CCRI) today announced that it has successfully completed the transfer of its portfolio of government and investor-focused climate tools, solutions, and financial instruments to not-for-profit partners. Supported by the CCRI board, the GI Hub is intended to take the role of Secretariat, responsible for collaborating with and supporting the CCRI legacy partners who will continue delivering the core programs begun by CCRI.
Infrastructure definitions and classifications (taxonomies) have a huge impact on how much gets invested in infrastructure and what types of infrastructure get this investment. This week the G20 and GI Hub held a roundtable on infrastructure taxonomies to explore how they can be used to help close the infrastructure investment gap.
The Global BIM Network collaborates to co-develop and host an online, open-access knowledge base of resources from governments and organisations championing BIM in public sector construction and infrastructure projects.
