The Quality Infrastructure Investment Database is an initiative of the G20 under the 2019 Japanese Presidency, in collaboration with the Global Infrastructure Hub, the OECD and the World Bank.
The database includes resources and facilities relevant to Quality Infrastructure Investment under the principles of Sustainable Growth & Development, Economic Efficiency, Environmental Considerations, Building Resilience, Social Considerations, and Infrastructure Governance.
Star Ratings provide an evidence-based objective measure of crash risk to ensure that safety is built-in to designs for upgrades and new roads prior to construction.
The data presented in this report show that progress has been achieved in important areas such as legislation, vehicle standards and improving access to post-crash care. This progress has not, however, occurred at a pace fast enough to compensate for the rising population and rapid motorization of transport taking place in many parts of the world.
In this report, Marsh & McLennan Insights, the Inter-American Development Bank and IDB Invest review the progress of the six largest infrastructure investment markets in the Latin American and the Caribbean region (the LAC6) in the recovery period following the Lava Jato investigation – the period from 2016 until the present. This report will evaluate private investment prospects in infrastructure based on transparency reforms and project pipeline initiatives offered by the region’s governments. The report will additionally outline a selection of key financing and risk solutions available to private investors to ensure project bankability in the region.
sustainABLE is a free online platform modelled on research jointly published by UNOPS and the University of Oxford-led Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium. The extensive research explored the critical role of infrastructure in achieving the SDGs. The tool aims to advance the SDGs by promoting practical measures that encourage project sustainability across a broad range of sectors.
The Inclusive Design Standards bring together what LLDC consider the best of existing good practice guidance and consolidate this in a single benchmarking document to be used as a tool by design teams. This second edition of the London Legacy Development Corporation’s (LLDC’s) Inclusive Design Standards (IDS), originally published in March 2013, is evidence of the positive impact and continued legacy created by the enormous success of the Olympic and Paralympic Games held in London back in the summer of 2012.
This strategy will support and inform the planning applications that will set out the long term vision for the development of sustainable communities within Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Infrastructure projects in the Netherlands, such as the construction of roads, bridges and tunnels, have become larger and more complex in recent years. This thesis is about these kinds of infrastructure projects, about the challenges and tensions that go with them, about how people experience them and how they look jointly for solutions, and how they succeed or sometimes fail.
RAND researchers used a six-step scenario development process to develop two thought-provoking scenarios that address the future of mobility in the US in 2030. Three driving forces caused one path to emerge over another: (1) the price of oil, (2) the development of environmental regulation, and (3) the amount of highway revenues and expenditures.
The Navigator – a web-based platform – helps project teams, public authorities and financiers to find the right sustainable infrastructure tool from amongst 50+ rating systems, high-level principles and guidelines.
What might one expect for the future of mobility in China in 2030? Mobility is defined as the ability to travel from one location to another, regardless of mode or purpose. RAND researchers used a six-step scenario development process to develop two thought-provoking scenarios that address this question.
Focused on the electricity system, BloombergNEF’s (BNEF’s) New Energy Outlook (NEO) combines the expertise of over 65 market and technology specialists in 12 countries to provide a unique view of how the market will evolve. Each year BNEF makes a number of changes to NEO as they strive to improve the completeness and complexity of their analysis. Click on the link to BNEF’s website to see the 10 key findings.
The Australian Infrastructure 2019 Audit covers transport, energy, water, telecommunications and – for the first time – social infrastructure, and looks at the major challenges and opportunities facing Australia’s infrastructure over the next 15 years and beyond. They have presented their findings in terms that matter to users, by focusing on outcomes for them. The hope is that this enhanced focus on users, and the role infrastructure can play in improving their quality of life, helps to drive better decisions that are rooted in the long-term interests of Australians.
The objective of the report and the accompanying index is not simply to rank countries, but to use score movements as a benchmark from which to investigate trends, identify successful PPP performers, and focus on the approaches that can facilitate a better understanding of common challenges and best-practice standards.
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.
In keeping with our mission to support the G20 to drive an ambitious infrastructure agenda, InfraCompass 2020 harnesses data from leading organisations around the world - including the World Bank, World Economic Forum, and the OECD - to assist countries to identify reforms that lead to better infrastructure investment.
