Strategic Infrastructure Planning: International Best Practice

This report reviews the experience with strategic infrastructure planning in a selection of countries and complements that analysis with a discussion of how strategic planning is conducted in the private sector. It summarises the discussion of a roundtable organised by ITF which brought together 27 international experts in London in June 2016. The roundtable was organised around presentations from regulators, policy makers and researchers on the strengths and weaknesses of strategic planning approaches in Australia, Denmark, France and Japan as well as reviews of planning practice from international financing institutions such as the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Global Infrastructure Hub, International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank.
