OverviewThe sixth in a series of annual reports exploring infrastructure investment and trends around the world, this book examines the subject from both national and global perspectives and provides key insights on the future of infrastructure planning and funding. A special section discussing the growing use of ballot initiatives for roads, transit, open space, and water in the United States is included in addition to case studies illustrating how infrastructure leaders are using new technology, regional cooperation, and other strategies to move infrastructure projects forward. This book not only analyzes emerging approaches to infrastructure funding and financing at the federal, state, regional, and local levels, but also makes recommendations on how state and local governments can make infrastructure projects happen despite constrained fiscal environments.
