Enabling Better Infrastructure: 12 guiding principles for prioritising and planning infrastructure.

As part of the newly launched Enabling Better Infrastructure programme, the Institution of Civil Engineers along with several major partner organisations have produced a report, Enabling Better Infrastructure: 12 guiding principles for prioritising and planning infrastructure. It identifies 12 key principles for decision-makers to use as a straight-forward guide to the best ways to plan, implement and deliver major infrastructure. These include best practice methods for undertaking infrastructure visioning exercises, conducting needs assessments and developing national infrastructure strategies. The report can be used as high-level guidance and a source of insight as to what decision-makers could do differently to improve infrastructure planning and prioritisation.

Alongside the report, the Enabling Better infrastructure programme also features a  comprehensive resource hub. Having recognised that a large amount of guidance exists globally on how best to plan and deliver infrastructure, this one-stop shop brings together case studies, advice and expert insight into how governments can undertake the process of planning and delivering infrastructure. The hub collates case studies from across the world, and across all areas of the infrastructure lifecycle.

If you would like to hear more about the programme or suggest case studies for the hub, please contact enablingbetterinfrastructure@ice.org.uk
