Making the right decisions about infrastructure is crucial for sustainable development. Infrastructure is essential to meet human
needs for energy, water, mobility and digital connectivity. Yet the wrong infrastructure can have devastating environmental impacts and exacerbate harmful carbon emissions.
The Executive Directors of the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) will explain how the UN is working to promote and enable sustainable infrastructure. They will address the crucial questions of how infrastructure can be provided that will achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, and how the resilience of infrastructure systems can be enhanced in the face of an uncertain future.
