Jointly organized by the World Bank’s Infrastructure Vice Presidency and the University of California, Berkeley, the second annual #Infra4Dev conference, "Decarbonizing Infrastructure," aims to explore the ways in which investments in and regulation of infrastructure are helping to mitigate the long-term effects of climate change, especially for those living in poverty in low- and middle-income countries. Through a series of talks and panels focusing on energy, transport and digital systems, we will survey the current policy debate on these topics and highlight opportunities for new collaborative research.
The conference will take place virtually on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 as part of the annual Evidence to Action symposium on "Climate Change and the Global South" organized by the Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA).
The virtual audience is intended for distinguished academics, practitioners and entrepreneurs with an expertise in the conference theme. The conference will feature opening remarks by Makhtar Diop, World Bank Vice President for Infrastructure, as well as plenaries with high-level experts, researchers and policymakers.
