Engaging the private sector in green infrastructure development and financing: A pathway toward building urban climate resilience

Source(s):  United States Agency for International Development (USAID)

Through case study analyses, this report provides recommendations for steps that city officials and the donor community can take to engage private sector partners in green infrastructure (GI) development and financing in developing countries. This report is intended to be a complementary resource to USAID’s Green Infrastructure Resource Guide (2017), which provides development practitioners involved in the planning and development of green infrastructure with an in depth understanding of their design and benefits.

This report is divided into the following sections: (1) executive summary; (2) an overview of GI; (3) the types of GI; (4) the cost, benefits and challenges of GI in the development context; (5) mechanisms to promote GI in developing countries' cities, including incentives for private sector investment; (6) recommendations for stakeholders to ensure the success of GI interventions; and (7) additional resources for GI. Four case studies of successful GI that yield both climate resilience and mitigation benefits in urban settings are provided to showcase opportunities for private sector involvement.
