The Global Infrastructure Hub is responsible for sharing insights for the infrastructure community. Search our databases, case studies and projects for information that can help facilitate the delivery of more and better infrastructure.
The Stocktake of InfraTech Use Cases is Reference Note 1 under the G20 Riyadh InfraTech Agenda, which was endorsed by the G20 Finance Ministers in July 2020. It provides a stock take of InfraTech Use Cases providing illustrative examples of applications of technology in infrastructure and highlights benefits, including application to COVID-19 and other pandemics. This page provides a description of each use case, categorised by its relationship to the InfraTech Agenda Elements.
The infratech use cases can be used by anyone who is interested in understanding the opportunities technology holds in optimising infrastructure outcome, from governments, technology firms, infrastructure investors, contractors and asset owners.
The infratech use cases support the Riyadh InfraTech Agenda to accelerate the adoption of technology in infrastructure delivery to drive better outcomes.
The Infrastructure Futures Report examines how a collection of 25 transformative trends (megatrends) could shape the world, and the infrastructure industry in the future.
The GI Hub and our report partners, WEF and BCG, conducted a scenario-planning exercise resulting in the development of three extreme, yet plausible, future scenarios to better understand the economic, social and environmental impacts of these megatrends.
The report is calling on infrastructure industry decision makers across the public and private sectors to consider, consult and collaborate on the challenges and opportunities presented by these megatrends to create a more resilient infrastructure industry.
This report is intended to provoke thought and inspire action; to promote awareness and discussion of the challenges facing the infrastructure industry, and to facilitate collaboration in the identification of solutions.
This guidance note helps governments maximise the impact of National Infrastructure Banks (NIB) on delivering quality infrastructure projects, driving private investment and providing value for end users.

The Quality Infrastructure Investment Database provides a comprehensive library of resources to support the public and private sector in the efficient delivery of quality infrastructure.
This database includes resources and facilities relevant to quality infrastructure investment under the principles of:
The G20’s Infrastructure Working Group (IWG) has identified sustainable infrastructure as one of its priorities, and circular economy is a topic that will be covered under this agenda. To support the G20's priorities, the GI Hub commenced in 2021 an initiative to examine the role that infrastructure can play in the transition to a circular economy. This thought piece examines the need for a circular economy, opportunities for infrastructure in the circular economy and key elements of the transition to a circular economy in and through infrastructure.
The GI Hub invites infrastructure stakeholder participation in our circular economy workstream. We see this thought piece and our related work as just the beginning of a journey in the transition towards a circular economy. The aspiration beyond these deliverables is for the G20 to continue the policy dialogue in collaboration with international organisations and industry stakeholders, and to agree on priority areas of focus in the coming months. The GI Hub encourages those interested in being part of this engagement to contact us and get involved.
This thought piece will help policymakers, other decisionmakers and practitioners in infrastructure explore the role of infrastructure in the circular economy, including key opportunities and elements of the transition to a circular economy in and through infrastructure.
We’ve created online tools that showcase best practice, offers practical guidance and frameworks to support the delivery of G20 members’ economic, social and environmental outcomes through quality infrastructure.
The guide draws key learnings and practices from a comprehensive literature review and the input of international infrastructure experts with in-depth experience in cross-border projects and infrastructure connectivity. The result is a new resource, informed by dozens of projects at every lifecycle stage from concept to planning, delivery and management of cross-border infrastructure.
This tool uses a practical evidence-based framework to increase positive social outcomes from large infrastructure projects for under-served or vulnerable groups.
This framework aims to maximise the impact of infrastructure investment on reducing inequality and promoting shared prosperity by:
GI Hub’s Innovative Funding and Financing tool is designed to help governments understand their options, identify frictions in their markets, and access solutions to improve the quality and quantity of projects attractive to private sector investors.
While other literature explores the broader benefits and value created through infrastructure, including social outcomes and other outcomes, the focus of this tool is to specifically address solutions for structuring projects to optimise private infrastructure investment.
The framework presented here will enable governments to explore emerging funding models and pinpoint specific areas where domestic infrastructure financing markets require interventions.
To complement the tool, 38 case studies have been compiled, exemplifying practical applications of the funding and financing levers that are identified in the framework.
Together, the framework and case studies contained in this tool will help governments structure more bankable projects and explore new ways to mobilise private finance to help close the infrastructure gap.
This reference guide supports quality infrastructure investment by providing a baseline for global best practice in the development of output specifications for quality infrastructure.
This guide provides:
The Public Private Partnership (PPP) Contract Management Tool provides practical guidance to help governments manage PPP contracts and concession contracts during construction and operations.

The Public Private Partnership (PPP) Risk Allocation Tool serves as a reference guide to assess the appropriate allocation of project risk and determine potential risk mitigation measures.
The guide aims to identify and allocate project risks between the public and private sectors in PPP transactions across different sectors by:
This guide is designed to assist governments to better plan the early stages of infrastructure projects to better support the development of sustainable, bankable and procurement-ready projects.
This tool assists policy-makers and practitioners by reviewing and profiling project preparation processes in 15 economically and geographically diverse countries, complemented by leading practices and lessons learned in:
Our tools use data to help you forecast infrastructure needs and gaps, identify priority reform areas for individual countries and analyse infrastructure delivery country-by-country.
Infrastructure Monitor provides data-driven insights to steer infrastructure actions towards more sustainable, resilient and inclusive infrastructure.
The inaugural 2020 edition reports on private investment in infrastructure and the performance of infrastructure investments. The report provides context and insights into what the data tells us and how it can assist the infrastructure-related G20 decisions and priorities, and the online data tool allows users to interact with the data and create their own visualisations.
We've created this online resource for policymakers, decision makers and practitioners around the globe to analyse infrastructure investment flows and their performance, providing momentum to strengthen data-driven discussions and decisions.
Infrastructure Monitor is ultimately about making data available that can steer actions towards meeting the global infrastructure investment gap in a sustainable, resilient and inclusive way. We encourage the infrastructure community to use it as a means of strengthening decisions and building momentum towards an improved global infrastructure environment.
InfraCompass allows users to search and compare 81 countries to assess their capability to deliver infrastructure projects by identifying priority reform areas and examining leading practices across eight key areas.
InfraCompass supports better awareness and understanding of global infrastructure capabilities by delivering:
InfraChallenge is an innovation competition aiming to accelerate the global infrastructure industry
