The Global Infrastructure Hub (GI Hub), working with the World Economic Forum (WEF) and Boston Consulting Group (BCG), conducted a scenario-planning exercise to understand how a collection of 25 transformative trends—megatrends—could reshape the infrastructure industry in the future. The exercise involved surveying more than 400 practitioners across 70 countries on the certainty of direction, scale of impact and level of preparedness for the megatrends. The output of this exercise resulted in three scenarios and a set of implications for the infrastructure industry.
The report identifies and explores six critical success factors that governments should be aware of and seriously consider when preparing an infrastructure project to be delivered as a Public-Private Partnership.
Infrastructure investment needs to be substantially increased in most developing and emerging economies to meet social needs and support more rapid economic growth.
The policy framework for investment provides a systematic approach for improving investment conditions and a comprehensive checklist of key policy issues for consideration by any government interested in creating an enabling environment for all types of investment.
The purpose of these principles is to help government work with private sector partners to finance and bring to fruition projects in areas of vital economic importance, such as transport, water and power supply and telecommunications.
