Infrastructure prioritization is rising up the agenda for governments, developers and investors around the world. Now, more than ever, governments and societies need a long-term plan that focuses on responding to the needs of society rather than the influences of the political cycle.
While the need for new appraisal and prioritization methodologies is critical, relatively limited research seems to have been conducted in this area. Few sources exist for those looking for leading practices and insights into developing their own assessment methodology. To close this gap and to help governments and project owners get more from their investments, we set out to research and assess current approaches to prioritization and assessment in a variety of markets around the world.
In this report, we shine the spotlight onto the emerging markets – South Africa, Brazil and India – as well as the UK which, arguably, boasts the most mature frameworks for assessing and prioritizing infrastructure investment.
