Making well-considered decisions on infrastructure financing is critical to improving equity, helping meet climate policy goals and bringing economic gains. Estimates put the global infrastructure financing gap through 2030 at USD 1 billion. It may be much more to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the Decade of Action for Road Safety and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. This session will explore strategies to activate more funds for transport infrastructure and incentivise investment in projects that contribute to more sustainable and safe transport.

- What are the best ways to link funding to environmental and safety objectives?
- What innovative financing tools will attract private funds to transport infrastructure investment?
