Cape Town, South Africa

This Event has Concluded.

Infrastructure is hard to get right—across the world. Until now, policy makers focused on improving access to finance. Marking a significant shift, representatives from African governments, the global private sector, multilateral institutions, and other development partners are meeting in Cape Town to participate in the region’s first roundtable on the governance of infrastructure. The topic takes center stage as consensus develops globally that a major factor hindering infrastructure implementation is a lack of good governance.

When governments are better able to identify, develop, and coordinate their infrastructure pipeline, project financing—both domestic and foreign—will flow. It is indisputably within the power of governments, the business community, and civil society to make this happen. Join us live for the first two sessions of this inaugural regional roundtable on infrastructure governance.
