As one of the key work-streams at the CNM, our Infrastructure programme will explore, debate and recommend policy proposals for the region’s infrastructure in its broadest sense, including transport, energy, water, digital, social infrastructure, and housing, as well as key enablers including policy, investment, planning, and skills.

We want to create a space for conversations which don’t happen anywhere else, exploring the interconnectivity between the complex system of systems our infrastructure and natural environment are part of.
