Benchmarking Infrastructure Regulation: Better Services for More People

Friday, November 20, 2020 - 9:00am to 10:30am ET

 
Appropriate and effective regulatory frameworks are crucial for ensuring that investments in infrastructure are made strategically and efficiently. This is put in even starker relief as the COVID-19 pandemic brings increasing fiscal constraints along with an interest in more infrastructure investment as governments seek to stimulate their economies. Benchmarking Infrastructure Development 2020 assesses the regulatory quality for preparation, procurement, and management of large infrastructure projects through both PPPs and traditional public investment – looking at PPP regulatory frameworks in 140 economies and including a pilot assessment of 40 economies for traditional public investment in infrastructure. By providing actionable indicators, the report supports evidence-based regulatory reforms to improve the enabling environment for developing projects that get better services for more people.
