InfraTech, as a topic for the G20 Infrastructure Working Group, commenced during the Saudi Arabian G20 Presidency with the endorsement of the G20 InfraTech Agenda by the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors in July 2020. InfraTech is defined in this agenda as the integration of digital and non-digital technologies with physical infrastructure to deliver efficient, connected, and resilient assets. To continue advancing InfraTech, the IWG asked the GI Hub and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) to develop a G20 Blueprint for Scaling Up InfraTech Financing and Development. The Blueprint provides a set of evidence-based, voluntary, non-binding actions to advance the six elements of the InfraTech Agenda.
To complement the blueprint, we created a Stocktake of Approaches for Scaling Up InfraTech. The stocktake provides case studies of InfraTech that attracted financing for development and implementation, and that could be scaled and replicated across sectors and jurisdictions.
The information and case studies in the blueprint and stocktake are also available, with further detail, on our InfraTech web pages.
