Infrastructure underpinning sustainable development

Nov 7, 2018

Preface

This report was produced as part of a collaborative partnership between the UNOPS and the University of Oxford-led Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium (ITRC). Through a systematic evaluation process, it presents and explains the ability for infrastructure to influence all 17 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including almost all of their targets. Accompanying these explanations are a rich set of examples that show how infrastructure projects, implemented by UNOPS and its partners, are helping to advance the 2030 Agenda in a variety of countries and contexts around the world. In doing so, it provides new and important evidence that highlights the central role of infrastructure in achieving the SDGs and in underpinning sustainable development.
