This resource is also available in Chinese.
The paper The Role of Investors in Promoting Sustainable Infrastructure Under the Belt and Road Initiative examines how the multilateral development banks (MDBs) and the European bilateral development finance institutions (DFIs) encourage the use of sustainable procurement by their borrowers, and how China’s policy banks approach this issue. On this basis, it makes recommendations for how these different actors could ensure that infrastructure projects being developed under the BRI are sustainable. Furthermore, recommendations are made for the governments of China and those of other countries engaged in the initiative.
