Framework for Sustainable Infrastructure


A guide for infrastructure planners

The United Nations projects that 68% of the world's population will live in urban areas by 2050, but the world faces a $15 trillion infrastructure gap through 2040. To achieve global economic, social, and environmental sustainability objectives, we need long-term improvement in public sector infrastructure delivery and strong investment in climate-resilient infrastructure.

Decisions regarding infrastructure investments will have economic and social impacts for the next 30 to 50 years, so government must create an environment that promotes thoughtful, data-informed decisions on what assets best serve the community, how to build them, and how to maintain them.

In this brief, you will read about how technology enables sustainable infrastructure development, including:

  • Getting it right from the start
  • Building blocks for sustainable infrastructure delivery
  • Consolidating the pipeline of infrastructure projects
  • Open and transparent contract management
  • Monitoring and performance reporting for success
  • And so much more!
