The Need for Essential Infrastructure
In North America and throughout the OECD, essential infrastructure is failing to keep pace with current and expanding needs. The financing gap for infrastructure is well- documented; globally, there is a $15 trillion gap between projected investment and the amount needed to provide adequate global infrastructure by 2040.
Infrastructure is fundamentally about relationships: between a community and its citizens, between a business and the stakeholders it serves, and between the physical infrastructure and its surrounding natural and socioeconomic environment. Studies show that infrastructure investment can create tangibly better economic and social opportunities for individuals and for countries, with an economic multiplier in North America of approximately 1.7 times for every dollar invested.
