In 2021, the GI Hub was asked by the G20 to analyse COVID-related infrastructure stimulus announcements. These announcements and plans continue to be relevant and useful examples of how governments can plan for and invest in transformative infrastructure that delivers the best possible economic, social, and environmental benefits, especially during challenging or uncertain economic conditions.
The table below highlights several G20 economies’ infrastructure stimulus packages that target transformative outcomes. These examples were selected on the basis of both the overall value of the stimulus package and the number of transformative outcomes targeted.
When viewing the examples, it should be remembered that each G20 country has unique priorities for stimulus, based on specific national circumstances.
