Inclusive Infrastructure: Scaling-Up Local Investment in the United States

 

  13 February 2024 | 16:00 EST


WHAT’S THE ISSUE?

With more than USD 1.57 trillion of federal funding committed over ten years, the Inflation Reduction Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill provide an opportunity to close the infrastructure investment gap in the United States. Maximising the long-term benefits from this funding – from job creation to improving the quality of life to addressing geographic divides – will require scaling up the capacity for inclusive investment at all levels of government. Many OECD countries have faced similar challenges and have developed new approaches that the United States can learn from. This webinar focused on a new OECD policy brief and international case studies to highlight lessons that can help US state and local actors make the most of this historic opportunity.
