Drivers of and barriers to capital market investments in low-carbon infrastructure in Brazil

July, 2021

This study seeks to identify the barriers that hinder, and the drivers that foster, an increase in capital market investments in infrastructure development in Brazil, with a focus on low-carbon infrastructure. There is a need for annual investments equivalent to US$ 53.15 billion per year in the country (or 4.3% of the GDP) over the next ten years to overcome infrastructure bottlenecks. In contrast, only 1.71% of the GDP was invested in infrastructure in Brazil in 2019 (ABDIB, 2020). Through examining the challenges that preclude capital market investments and the incentives that enable them, this study seeks to explore actions that could be employed to create a more attractive environment for institutional investors, thus contributing to remedying the lack in low-carbon infrastructure in the country.
