The OECD Recommendation on the Governance of Infrastructure provides practical guidance for efficient, transparent and responsive decision-making processes in infrastructure investment.
The Future of Infrastructure report (Annual edition) is based on a survey covering more than 10,000 people in 10 major global cities to ask about their everyday experiences with infrastructure services.
Infrastructure Finance in the Developing World: Multilateral Lending Instruments for Infrastructure Financing - A report by the G-24 and the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI). This paper is part of The Infrastructure Finance in the Developing World Working Paper Series, which is a joint research effort by GGGI and the G-24 that explores the challenges and opportunities for scaling up infrastructure finance in emerging markets and developing countries.
In light of the overwhelming needs for infrastructure finance in emerging and developing economies and the limitations facing alternative flows of financing, there is a clear role of MDBs to continue and in fact step up their activities. The Infrastructure Finance in the Developing World Working Paper Series is a joint research effort by GGGI and the G-24 that explores the challenges and opportunities for scaling up infrastructure finance in emerging markets and developing countries.
This paper assesses the challenges and trade-offs faced by the three major NDBs in emerging economies in their efforts to (1) reach the goals set by their governments, (2) obtain the resources needed to function at a meaningful scale, and (3) operate within their unique economic and political contexts.
The paper discusses general trends in involving the private sector in public projects, PPPs and asymmetric information, and policy conclusions.
This paper examines the public finance underpinnings for an enhanced focus on different types of long-term investments as well as on operations and maintenance of existing investments.
This paper discusses some of the main challenges in developing a robust and viable project pipeline to address the daunting infrastructure needs facing many countries worldwide.
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.

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.
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.
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.
Explore the capability of 56 countries to deliver infrastructure projects, identify priority reforms and pinpoint leading practices across infrastructure governance & institutions, regulatory frameworks, permits, planning, procurement and delivery.
Project preparation is a critical enabler of infrastructure development and has been identified as a key pillar in the G20 s strategic roadmap to develop infrastructure as an asset class.
The Climate and Disaster Risk Screening Tools developed by the World Bank, provide a systematic, consistent, and transparent way of considering short- and long-term climate and disaster risks in project and national/sector planning processes.
