This session, co-organized by the World Bank Group and the UK Department for International Development, will address so-called ‘demand-side’ barriers, such as a lack of ‘investment-ready’ projects on the market, or risks around regulation, law and political stability that discourage investors and result in sub-optimal investment. It will bring parties with different perspectives together in a constructive debate to identify the actions needed to move the sector forward, and will give the different actors the opportunity to set out their vision of how the sector needs to change.
