Investor ready cities: how cities can create and deliver infrastructure value

This report looks at the challenges for cities in delivering investor ready infrastructure projects. Focussing on the importance of infrastructure in our cities, and its role in sustainable development and effective delivery of services, the report starts with the importance of legal and governance structures that need to be in place to provide the necessary security and certainty to the investment community that will encourage them to invest in infrastructure projects. It then illustrates how cities with the appropriate foundations of institutional stability can leverage financial mechanisms to their advantage to help deliver the infrastructure that is so critical to their future. It looks at the steps that need to be taken to create a governance, legal and regulatory environment which will support harnessing the full range of potential sources of funding. With a growing need for urban management, strategic planning and infrastructure efficiency, this report also illustrates through a set of case studies of catalytic infrastructure developments how the intelligent planning of cities helps make informed decisions about the correct choice of infrastructure and supporting technology.
