This policy brief, The Infrastructure And Climate Change Nexus: Integrated approaches as a catalyst for transformational change, explores interlinkages between climate change mitigation and adaptation, and diverse forms of infrastructure. Given that infrastructure in every sector has climate implications, the brief raises awareness about the need for an integrated approach to the planning and development of resilient, low-carbon infrastructure assets to achieve the targets enshrined in the Paris Agreement and to boost climate-smart growth.

This policy brief, Mainstreaming Biodiversity In The Infrastructure Sector: Fostering system-level approaches, explores interlinkages between biodiversity, ecosystems, and landscapes and diverse forms of infrastructure. Recognising that this nexus is central to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, it calls attention to the need for an integrated approach to infrastructure planning and development to mainstream biodiversity in the infrastructure sector.
