Infrastructure development is the greatest challenge for Africa in the 21st century. Africa is set to spend at least US$1 trillion on all areas of infrastructure, such as transport systems, hospitals, water and waste management, etc, over the next 20 years. The continent needs to make sure that it attains and develops infrastructure in a cost effective, appropriate and affordable manner. Getting value for money is paramount.
