Frederic Blanc-Brude will take part in the SESSION I: Infrastructure resilience in light of covid-19. He will give a presentation on the resilience of returns in unlisted infrastructure with emphasis on the following questions:
•The impact of Covid-19 on unlisted infrastructure performance
•What were the drivers of performance: risk premia vs rates vs cash flows
•The future of infrastructure valuations and returns
SESSION I: Infrastructure resilience in light of covid-19
The goal of Session I is to consider infrastructure resilience in light of the impact of covid-19, which is described in the OECD concept note on Covid-19 and a New Resilient Infrastructure Landscape. It is also important to look beyond – to how infrastructure can be made more resilient across multiple dimensions. These include physical, operational, business models and governance, as well as financial, and consider also infrastructure systems more generally, taking into account broader factors such as the environment and climate.
SESSION II: Policy tools and guidance for implementing Quality Infrastructure Investment
The goal of Session II is to provide a review of tools and implementation approaches that have been developed at the international and national level to promote QII, consider key challenges and barriers, and identify the ways in which QII could be further promoted at the policy and implementation levels.
SESSION III: How can QII contribute to tackling key challenges in emerging economies in the Asia region?
The goal of Session III is to explore pathways to create value through the adoption of QII, tailored to meet challenges specific to the Asia region and country circumstances, drawing on country experiences.
SESSION IV: Financing Quality Infrastructure Investment in the Asia Region
The goal of Session IV is to discuss the financing of quality infrastructure investment, by presenting case studies and examples of financing and implementing QII, including in the Asia region, in particular examples related to asset recycling, securitisation, partnerships, or other innovative approaches that could be considered in the broader context of the Asia region.
