Webinar: Financing Infrastructure for Cities
Cities around the world are facing a crisis of investment. An integral part of solving this challenge requires building local government capacities and providing practitioners, academics, and advisors who work with cities with leading strategies that have the potential to advance infrastructure investment in ways that contribute to sound municipal fiscal systems. Join the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy in our first Municipal Fiscal Health webinar series focused on infrastructure finance in the U.S. featuring: Dr. Julie Kim, a global infrastructure finance expert at Stanford University's Global Projects Center with over 30 years of public-private partnerships and infrastructure consulting experience in the U.S. and Asia; and Nicole DuPuis, from the nation's leading advocacy organization devoted to strengthening and promoting cities as centers of opportunity, leadership and governance, the National League of Cities.
- Learn about the magnitude of the infrastructure challenges facing cities from the 2016 National League of Cities Infrastructure Report.
- Hear strategies that are being leveraged by cities to navigate the complex world of infrastructure financing sustainably and finance bankable projects.
- Understand expert insights from Dr. Julie Kim's Handbook on Urban Infrastructure Finance, developed by The New Cities Foundation and Stanford University to help cities understand a myriad of financing vehicles, including land value capture instruments, bonds, public private partnerships, and others.
- Created with an interdisciplinary focus, the conversation endeavors to offer strategies to leaders working with cities in both the finance and planning disciplines.
