Consultative Process on Sustainable Infrastructure

In November 2020, the EMG Senior Officials agreed to establish a Consultative Process on Sustainable Infrastructure to strengthen the coordination of UN-system support to the Member States in this area of work and requested the EMG Secretariat to facilitate its establishment.

Objective and scope

Based on the outcome of the EMG Nexus Dialogue on sustainable infrastructure and EMG Members’ shared interest and expertise in sustainable infrastructure, the Consultative Process will deliver the following outputs:

  1. EMG Members’ review of the International Good Practice Principles for Sustainable Infrastructure and provision of written comments, with a view to endorsement as a UN-wide framework, either in its current form or as a revised document with increased scope and ambition.
  2. Compilation of sustainable infrastructure tools from UN bodies in support of Member States’ implementation of the International Good Practice Principles for Sustainable Infrastructure – to be integrated into existing Sustainable Infrastructure Tool Navigator Platform, as applicable.
  3. Preparation and maintenance of a consolidated calendar of UN events and international policy processes in the lead-up to UNEA-5.2 in February 2022 related to or relevant to sustainable infrastructure and identification of opportunities for engagement with those processes.
  4. Ongoing provision of coordinated inputs into relevant events and policy processes, where opportunities exist.
  5. A follow-up meeting to the EMG Nexus Dialogue on sustainable infrastructure, with a proposed focus on how sustainable infrastructure can deliver on SDGs while stimulating economies and building the resilience of infrastructure systems in the COVID-19 recovery context.
