2024 OECD Infrastructure Forum

Breakout 5A - Green criteria for strengthening the assessment of public investments

Apr 10, 2024 | 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM


Room CC1 Traditional tools and mechanisms to appraise infrastructure projects are often ill-equipped to consider environmental and climate aspects. This session will look at how to align project assessment with environmental objectives to support green infrastructure investments, in order to strengthen evidence for both mitigation and adaptation measures. Notably, it will provide insights on how to integrate environmental criteria in project planning, appraisal, and prioritisation, considering the entire asset lifecycle. It will also reflect on the role of methodological tools to evaluate costs and benefits, including carbon emissions, climate risks, and other environmental externalities.
