A practical guide for governments, informed by a country-lens review of leading practices
In June 2016, under Japanese presidency, G7 Leaders endorsed G7 Ise- Shima Principles for Promoting Quality Infrastructure Investment, which has crystalized as definition of quality infrastructure investment.
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.
This report sets out several of the recent advances, and suggests the most promising approaches, to the quantification and valuation of some of the wider economic benefits that flow from transport-related development.
This report reviews experiences with strategic infrastructure planning with a view to identifying international best practices.
