The Solution Lab
Scaling for Sustainable Infrastructure Results Booklet - 10-Month Multi-Stakeholder Journey from 2019 to 2020.
Sustainable infrastructure is globally recognised as key to realising the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Over the last years, more and more strategies, policies and tools have been developed to unleash this untapped potential for sustainable development. Yet, public and private sector still struggle to put in place infrastructures that meet the four principles of sustainability: economic and financial, environmental, social and institutional. To analyse what hinders broad uptake of sustainable infrastructure solutions, to identify approaches that work, and to devise strategies for their scaling, the Global Solutions Initiative (GSI) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH jointly launched “The Solutions Lab: Scaling for Sustainable Infrastructure” in October 2019.
