The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) is working with other multilateral development banks (MDBs) and international organisations (IOs) to define common mechanisms and policies to tackle the infrastructure gap in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) by attracting more private investment. This paper is the first step towards utilising the resources offered by PPFs for infrastructure development projects in LAC, and applying these useful tools to another critical region.
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.
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.
