Abstract

Sustainable infrastructure development through proper and adequate financing is one of the most significant elements impacting the achieving of the Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs. in Asia and the Pacific. However, significant challenges and risks around the financing of infrastructure projects – many of which are large, complex and sometimes span sovereign borders – often mean that hesitations and bottlenecks occur. Taking stock of the infrastructure financing landscape in the region, this policy brief advocates a strategic shift in mindset to a more efficient and effective use of resources for infrastructure development, focusing on leveraging additional funds from both public and private sectors, through adopting a more holistic approach to infrastructure financing.
