This breakout session brings together global financial institutions, Indigenous Development Corporations, and Northern government officials to discuss infrastructure investment in the North American Arctic. The plenary will be a moderated discussion focusing on what kinds of financial models are necessary to help address the North American Arctic Infrastructure gap. What kind of public-private partnerships are needed to help attract global capital to the North? What can we learn from recent public- private partnerships including the role that indigenous equity investment played or did not play in those partnerships? What challenges remain?
