“…Looking ahead, it is the private sector that will need to provide the bulk of the trillion dollars a year needed to plug the global infrastructure gap. The private sector will also be the frontline of the global battle for sustainability, whether reducing greenhouse gas emissions or building a circular economy with zero waste. For all these reasons, a partnership approach is essential … In the end … partnerships need to involve a sophisticated, holistic approach that recognizes different actors can contribute in different ways, and that intelligent design of markets and incentives is the best means of going about this” (9/7).
