Document Summary:

Public private partnerships, often involving a publicly granted concession to private partners, are one approach by which many fiscally-constrained countries finance and design infrastructure projects. Hard infrastructure of all types is vulnerable to climate risks, including energy, water and waste management infrastructure assets. Transportation infrastructure, such as roads, rail, navigable waterways, airports, and pipelines, is highly vulnerable to climate-induced events such as extreme temperatures, heavy rain, drought, wind and tornadoes.

This panel will discuss how the need for climate resilience affects infrastructure deals, the challenges to modeling and apportioning climate risks, as well as new developments in PPPs that incorporate climate resilience among other topics.
