Workshop on Innovation, Standardisation and Data Collection for Long-term Investment

This Workshop will bring together academics, public stakeholders and industry experts to discuss:

  • Using Blockchain technology to unlock data for AI
  • Financial, sustainability and quality benchmarks for infrastructure

Debates will be held in the context of the Infrastructure Data Initiative (IDI). By looking at available data sources and identifying information gaps, the IDI is positioned to improve data transparency and quality by integrating existing approaches and repositories of infrastructure data, while also considering new approaches to data diffusion, particularly through new technologies such as Blockchain and AI that can enhance data quality, integrity, and security.

This workshop is organised by the G20/OECD Task Force on Long-term Investment Financing and contributes to the G20 Infrastructure Data Initiative (IDI). This is a joint initiative of the OECD, Multilateral Development Banks, the Global Infrastructure Hub, and the Long-Term Infrastructure Investment Association, amongst others, works on advancing data analysis on infrastructure to support well-informed investment decisions.

This Workshop will be held back to back with the Third meeting of the Roundtable on Financing Water on 12 November and the OECD Forum on Green Finance and Investment, 13-14 November. The  G20/OECD Task Force on Long-term Investment Financing will meet on 16 November.
