Infrastructure, consisting especially of transport, ICT, energy and water, has become so intermeshed with modern living that it is difficult to imagine a world without it. Inadequate and poor quality infrastructure not only holds back economic activity but also drastically reduces the quality of life. It is no surprise, then, that the Governments of developing countries have placed infrastructure development very high on their action agenda.
