Description

Globally, urban infrastructure is in better shape than many reports would have you believe, but, if cities fail to ramp up spending on their transport, energy, water and waste-management systems in the near future, these vital infrastructures and services are going to suffer—and city leaders will be blamed.

This paper, based on a survey of more than 400 respondents—300 business executives and 100 policymakers— investigates the state of urban infrastructure around the world and how city leaders can engage with citizens and service providers to secure support and investment for these projects.
