The Sustainable Infrastructure Foundation (SIF) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together on promoting sustainable infrastructure development and financing.
The two institutions will develop reports on infrastructure project development worldwide across a wide range of topics from quality infrastructure investments, infrastructure technology, private sector participation and meeting SDGs and Paris Agreement targets.
The SIF will support the enhanced dissemination of OECD knowledge, toolkits, and reports, by featuring them in seven languages on SOURCE, the SIF’s multilateral platform for sustainable infrastructure, accompanied by user-friendly tooltips and guidance.
The SIF will also reference OECD standards and principles, such as the OECD Principles for the Governance of Public-Private Partnerships, and the OECD Recommendation for the Governance of Infrastructure, on the SOURCE platform.
“Anonymised data from the SOURCE platform will enable the OECD to analyse a wealth of project infrastructure data and provide countries with public policy recommendations. By supporting the implementation of OECD principles and frameworks on the SOURCE platform, we will increase the dissemination of international best practices for policies worldwide”,
Christophe Dossarps, SIF CEO.
“I welcome this first step of enhanced co-operation between the OECD and SIF and look forward to developing a mutually beneficial relationship going forward,”
Deputy Secretary-General Yoshiki Takeuchi, OECD Deputy Secretary-General.
The Memorandum of Understanding was signed on 11 October 2022 at the OECD in Paris, France. The SIF was represented by Christophe Dossarps, SIF CEO, and the OECD was represented by Nicolas Pinaud, Deputy Director, OECD Directorate for Financial and Enterprise Affairs.
The Sustainable Infrastructure Foundation (SIF), is a non-profit foundation based in Geneva, which coordinates the provision of SOURCE, the multilateral platform for sustainable infrastructure led and funded by the Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs), and supports the development of well-prepared projects to bridge the infrastructure gap and advance the government digitalisation agendas.
