GI Hub: supporting infrastructure development, delivery and financing
The Global Infrastructure Hub (GI Hub), has launched its Beta “Field Guide to Infrastructure Resources” to aid both the public and private sectors in navigating procurement practices and infrastructure across the globe.
The online database contains an exhaustive list of roughly a thousand global resources, which are catalogued, and can be searched by country, infrastructure sector, author organisation, and type. The Field Guide brings infrastructure insights together into a single platform and is easily accessible to enable effective dissemination of knowledge.
The Field Guide seeks to address challenges highlighted by the private and public sector in accessing fundamental infrastructure data which can delay or block investment. According to the B20 there is an opportunity to unlock $2 trillion in potential global infrastructure capacity by 2030.
Global Infrastructure Hub CEO Chris Heathcote said: “We have a G20 mandate to increase the flow and the quality of opportunities for public and private infrastructure investment. The Field Guide to Infrastructure Resources is our first step in developing a knowledge network for governments, international organisations, development banks, national infrastructure institutions and the private sector to share information on infrastructure projects and financing. We plan to improve and add extra features to the Field Guide over time, to connect more infrastructure practitioners with the essential data they need to unlock infrastructure investment opportunities.”
The Field Guide covers the full infrastructure investment cycle – from policy environments, to project planning and delivery. It includes publications and web-based materials from the public and private sector on infrastructure development.
The Field Guide to Infrastructure Resources can be accessed free of charge via the Global Infrastructure Hub website: guide.globalinfrastructurehub.org
The Ultimate Procurement & Supply Chain Event
From September 28th-30th, network with C-level executives, gain insight from industry pioneers and walk away with actionable insights that accelerate your career. By the end of the week, we promise you’ll have the skills to solve the world’s most pressing supply chain and procurement challenges.
The three-day show is an essential deep dive into the industry, with influential speakers sharing insights and strategies from their organisations, group roundtable discussions, and fireside chats. Whether you attend virtually or in person, you’ll strategise how to cope with global disruption, learn from industry leaders, and walk away with tips, tactics, and tangible connections.
How to Attend
In a COVID-disrupted era, we know that the majority of people would rather avoid travelling for events─why take the risk, right? In response to the continued disruption, BizClik Media Group has decided that Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE will offer the best of both worlds through hybrid accessibility.
That means you and your peers can attend the event in person or virtually ─ with no disadvantages for people who choose not to make the trip to the Tobacco Dock venue.
Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE will be held at the Tobacco Dock in London, an industry-leading venue that is renowned for delivering world-class events. For attendees’ peace of mind, the venue is working to the government-endorsed AEV All Secure Framework, alongside mia’s AIM Secure and ‘Good to Go’ accreditation, they will ensure that we achieve a COVID-secure environment to facilitate all of your networking needs.
Our physical venue is both historic and stunning, but it has no bearing on the information that you and your peers can gain from the event. You can still absorb it all, interact with other attendees, and enjoy the conference experience on your alternative, virtual platform.
The platform will feature live feeds from all of the stages, as well as virtual networking areas. So, if you want to avoid travel, it’s not a problem! You can still get involved and enjoy the entire experience from the comfort of your own home.
