The Infrastructure 100: World Markets Report highlights key trends driving infrastructure investment around the world and identifies 100 of the world’s most innovative, impactful infrastructure projects.
In an age of austerity and with funding in short supply, governments must make difficult choices about where to focus infrastructure spend. Balancing the aspirations of a nation with the need for true social benefit is not an easy challenge.
In this year’s report, a global panel of independent industry experts identifies 100 of the world’s most inspirational and innovative infrastructure projects, many of which are expected to transform the way the world’s populations interact with their cities, governments and environment. One of these projects is the Auckland Most Livable City plan.
