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.
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.

This paper examines investments - in the form of equity or debt—in direct investments to infrastructure. The reason for focusing on direct investment is twofold. First, the overall analysis of debt and equity capital markets for infrastructure exceeds the scope of this study and involves instruments that trade on regulated stock and bond markets. Second, the analysis of direct investments by private investors in listed infrastructure enables us to focus more on the risk analysis process that these investors typically perform when approaching an investment.
This paper expands upon existing literature by proposing a wider definition of what constitutes green infrastructure. We then develop a holistic cost model by defining and quantifying the investment categories that should be considered part of green infrastructure.
