  • This event will have simultaneous interpretation (English/Portuguese).

Most of the infrastructure that will be required by 2050 is yet to be built. This necessity to build credible, strategic, and critical infrastructure systems is juxtaposed with rising climate and disaster risks. Recent estimates suggest that the annual investment required to address the infrastructure deficit, achieve net-zero transitions, attain the fulfilment of SDGs, and strengthen resilience by 2050, amount to US$ 9.2 trillion, out of which US$ 2.76 must be invested in Low-and Middle-Income countries (LMICs)

Through this side event of the G20 DRR Working Group the Government of Brazil, the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) seek to:

  1. Build the compelling political, economic and social narrative for infrastructure resilience through dissemination of the key findings of the GIRI model and the CDRI Biennial Global Report.
  2. Share infrastructure resilience practices among G20 member countries with a focus on infrastructure risk assessment, regulatory frameworks, standards and financing.
  3. Discuss opportunities for enhancing infrastructure resilience through policy and planning frameworks and international cooperation at global, national and local level across
    various geographies.
