Global Infrastructure Outlook: Infrastructure Investment Need
10.87 MB •
The infrastructure gap around the world remains wide and is, in many places, widening. However, some governments are closing this gap.
By tapping into the drivers of successful infrastructure planning and delivery to become more competitive and attractive for investment, they are reaping the benefits through stronger partnerships with the private sector and better quality infrastructure.
InfraCompass pinpoints exactly how they do this. Through the lens of six key drivers, it allows countries to focus on specific areas for improvement or reform, with confidence (based on evidence) that these improvements will make a tangible difference to the delivery of infrastructure, with all its attendant benefits of value for money, cost and time efficiencies, and public trust.
Robust governance, capable institutions, leadership and consistent regulatory frameworks, combined with well-planned and procured projects, all contribute to the delivery of successful, valuable infrastructure.
Emerging countries are reforming their practices and attracting greater private investment to increase access to transport, energy, social, water and telecommunications services that are efficient, higher quality and value for money. This in turn delivers greater growth, productivity, jobs and trade.
Using the insights provided by InfraCompass, governments and private investors will be better able to focus on the areas that will result in change and better outcomes for their market.
And with leadership and a willingness to pursue the reforms highlighted by InfraCompass, this framework provides a unique opportunity to drive global prosperity and to secure greater social and economic benefits from quality infrastructure.
