G20-OECD Policy Toolkit to Mobilise Funding and Financing for Inclusive and Quality
Infrastructure Investment in Regions and Cities
Over the coming years, significant infrastructure investment will be required to sustain
economic growth and improve well-being in many regions and cities. Subnational governments
will have a key role to help provide this infrastructure - they are responsible for
almost 60% of total public investment in G20 countries. This G20-OECD Policy Toolkit,
developed with input from the Asian Development Bank, aims to support inclusive and
quality infrastructure investment by subnational governments across developing, emerging
and developed countries. It outlines key elements of creating an enabling environment
for subnational infrastructure investment. It then details common and innovative funding
sources, financing instruments and investment approaches. Rather than recommending
specific instruments, it provides a ‘toolkit’ of options for policymakers and practitioners.
The Policy Toolkit is supported by 23 case studies.
