How can private capital accelerate the green transition in marine and freshwater infrastructure? This is the overarching question that will be explored at the IADC conference Financing Sustainable Marine and Freshwater Infrastructure.

The conference is based on a recently published study exploring the financing of green coastal, river and port projects. Sustainable waterborne infrastructure solutions are available, have been tested and are economically viable and private capital could help to accelerate the uptake of such solutions. The report can be downloaded for free here.
