Developing a Pathway for Universal Infrastructure Coverage
Establishing an ambition for universal infrastructure coverage recognizes that the disruption that is occurring in infrastructure is reducing the capital cost that is required to deliver outcomes.
Infrastructure is subject to the same forces of technology disruption that have impacted established sectors, including newspapers, music, and high street retail businesses. Today, we stand at a watershed moment where technology is disrupting infrastructure service delivery models.
Developing a new investment model that enables and facilitates universal infrastructure coverage will require new capabilities, including the development of stewardship principles that will align the management of an infrastructure business with its community. Turning the current trickle of capital that is being invested in developing-country infrastructure into a mighty river comes down to simple propositions, which are analyzed in this brief.
