The Infrastructure for Development Conference series (#Infra4Dev) is an initiative of the World Bank’s Infrastructure Vice-Presidency, aiming to promote dialogue and exchange between leading edge economic researchers and the wider community of policymakers and practitioners on leveraging infrastructure for development.
The World Bank and the IGC are partnering for the third annual #Infra4Dev Conference, to be held online on the mornings (ET) of 3-4 March 2022. Policymakers around the world are currently grappling with the immediate economic recovery from the global pandemic, while at the same time trying to steer the global economy on to a more sustainable long-term development path. Accordingly, the theme for this year’s conference is understanding how various forms of infrastructure contribute to improving economic performance. Specifically, we will explore how a variety of infrastructural developments – such as digital infrastructure, transport networks, and energy systems – are linked to economic growth and wider development impacts.
