ADBI-CI Virtual Workshop on Analyzing Infrastructure Impacts in Asia Through Big Data: Socioeconomic Spillover Assessment
Infrastructure development could provide an important boost to COVID-19 recovery among developing Asian economies but will require financing solutions that address growing constraints on the use of public funds for projects due to the pandemic. New funding sources are particularly vital for tackling the region’s sustainable infrastructure investment gap, which is equal to 2.4% of GDP and includes financing for climate mitigation and adaptation.
Cohosted with the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Institute, this final virtual workshop of the ADBI series on infrastructure impact analysis in Asia through big data examined new, big data-based research on infrastructure’s socioeconomic spillover effects and measures for optimizing them to mobilize private investment in growth within the sector.
