Emerging trends in mainstreaming climate resilience in large scale, multi-sector infrastructure PPPs

This report presents a synthesis of insights on climate risks to infrastructure and on how to implement public-private partnership (PPPs) for infrastructure, building on interviews with experts from multilateral development banks, analysis of national policy frameworks for PPPs and adaptation, and a literature review, to identify where these topics do and should overlap.

There is increasing need for decision makers involved in the public investment process including that of PPPs to both understand how climate change risks could affect their investments and how to mitigate those risks through financial instruments. The paper aims to engage PPP practitioners as well as governments and their advisors in a broader discussion on how a paradigm shift in thinking will be needed in the way Infrastructure PPPs are planned, developed, procured and implemented.
