Communities throughout the United States are facing unprecedented infrastructure challenges, including compromised energy, water, and transportation systems. This is more than just a matter of inconvenience—unless addressed, decades of neglect and lack of investment will result in loss of business sales, reduced jobs and wages, and negative impacts to the country’s GDP.
Capital constraints can make it challenging or impossible for governments to meet stated infrastructure development goals. Governments will increasingly need to partner with and seek investment from the private sector.
The report Unlocking Private Capital to Finance Sustainable Infrastructure, developed for the Environmental Defense Fund, provides a framework to support government actors in developing investment-ready projects under traditional and innovative financing mechanisms. Its findings are drawn from a comprehensive review of best practices and in-depth interviews with experts and thought leaders involved in the deployment, financing and market development of sustainable infrastructure.
