Sustainable infrastructure is critical for addressing developmental challenges in emerging markets.
IFC offers long-term financing and industry-leading expertise to develop infrastructure projects that provide essential services—including electricity, telecommunications, transportation, water & and sanitation—in partnership with the private sector.
As part of the World Bank Group, we also work with governments and development partners to create a business environment that attracts private capital to infrastructure sectors.
The 26th U.N. Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) is taking place in Glasgow from October 31 to November 12, 2021, where leadership from the World Bank Group will boost efforts to ramp up support for a green, resilient, and inclusive recovery and support to low-carbon transitions that put people at the center.
