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.
