Subject:
The workshop is a response to an urgent call for effective governance systems balancing environmental, economic, and social needs in infrastructure development. Demand for basic infrastructure (e.g., water and sewage, energy production and distribution, transportation) remains at the core of development in the decades ahead, while our natural environmental conditions are deteriorating due to limited resources and space. This leads to increasingly salient social and political tensions.
 
The objective of this workshop is to explore and discuss effective governance systems with respect to different policy approaches and institutional mechanisms to managing environmental, economic, and social impacts related to infrastructure development and delivery.
