The Brookfield Centre in Real Estate and Infrastructure at York University’s Schulich School of Business has announced the third year of the prestigious Sustainable Infrastructure Fellowship Program.

This is the only program of its kind in the world and is offered online from June through December 2022. The Fellowship Program was created in 2018 by the Investor Leadership Network (ILN) as a G7 initiative, in collaboration with Schulich. It is also supported by the Global Infrastructure Hub (GI-Hub), a not-for-profit organization formed by the G20 that advances the delivery of sustainable, resilient and inclusive infrastructure.

“The ILN is proud of the Sustainable Infrastructure Fellowship Program’s success in building project preparation capacity for public sector infrastructure planners,” shared Amy Hepburn, CEO of the ILN Secretariat. “We’re thrilled to have recruited our largest cohort of Fellows yet.”

The Fellowship is directed at senior government leaders in emerging markets to assist in developing sustainable, investment-ready infrastructure projects. The ILN is a consortium of 13 of the largest institutional investors globally representing over US$10 trillion in assets, several of which are Canadian. Instructors come from both academia and industry. This year’s cohort of 34 Fellows was selected from among 63 applicants following an extensive international marketing program. Nineteen countries are represented in the 2022 Fellowship and include India, Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Philippines, South Africa, Kenya, Georgia, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan.

“The Sustainable Infrastructure Fellowship Program exemplifies the benefits of partnership and collaboration, as we work together to help mobilize private capital towards emerging and frontier markets,” said Professor Jim Clayton, director of the Brookfield Centre and Program Director of Schulich’s Master of Real Estate and Infrastructure program. “The third delivery of the Fellowship comes at a time when closing the infrastructure gap is of increased urgency, and this program is uniquely positioned to support the development of sustainable infrastructure.”
