The benefits of systematically prioritising infrastructure projects

In our last post, KPMG’s approach to infrastructure prioritisation for Big Cities, we documented our approach to the prioritization process, and advised on how KPMG assists Big Cities in prioritization, planning or sequencing of the projects. In Big Cities Infrastructure Prioritisation we looked at the necessity of accurate and though-out prioritization to ensure sustainability and long-term benefit. Here, we take a look at the benefits of prioritization of infrastructure projects, and introduce you to our Big Cities team.

The benefits:

  • Global Cities expertise and experience with local understanding
  • Efficient results that is economical on scarce resources
  • Effective process for incorporating complex, changing and context-specific development inputs
  • Transparent process, auditable, with a clear rationale
  • Allows evaluation of the impact of competing mandates and goals
  • Customisable to suit changing circumstances and needs
  • Record of (selection and rejection) rational for the selection of infrastructure projects
  • Baseline record and process for reviews and reassessment

About the Expo:

There are a number of challenges presented by urban living and by urbanization. Infrastructure and public works are considered the most significant of the challenges. There are concerns around issues such as clean water access, sanitation, reliable electricity, sufficient public transport and healthcare.

Each megacity presents a unique case, with its own challenges and local context requiring consideration. The focus of this conference and expo is on challenges, insights and opportunities.
