|Infrastructure 100: World Markets Report|
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, the federal government, as well as states and municipalities, must make difficult choices about where and how to focus their infrastructure dollars.. Balancing national aspirations with the needs for true social benefit is challenging.
In this year’s report, a global panel of independent industry experts once again 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. Several of these award-winning projects are based in the U.S. and ranging in locations from Alaska to New York City. KPMG’s Andy Garbutt notes that “The U.S. is at the forefront of developing creative infrastructure projects and accompanying creative financing structures and we expect that trend to grow in the coming years.”
The report also highlights key trends driving infrastructure investment in key markets around the world and demonstrates how governments are coming together with the private sector to overcome funding constraints in order to finance and build projects that can improve quality of life – both solving immediate needs and planning for future societal demands.
