What is this tool?

Inclusive Infrastructure is infrastructure development that enhances positive outcomes in social inclusivity, and ensures that no individual, community or social group is left behind or prevented from benefiting from improved infrastructure.

The Reference Tool on Inclusive Infrastructure and Social Equity presents a practical evidence-based framework for practitioners to maximise the impact of infrastructure investment on reducing inequality and promoting shared prosperity.

The framework details six Action Areas, or themes, related to infrastructure development, and provides related guidance under each, which are then illustrated by real-life examples, including the eight detailed case studies.

Explore the interactive framework below.

The Framework for Inclusive Infrastructure

These Action Areas are then broken down into practices which provide a full list of recommendations for practitioners to use in the implementation of more inclusive infrastructure.

Targeted Stakeholder Groups

In the context of inclusive infrastructure and the optimisation of benefits, specific groupings of targeted stakeholders include, but are not limited to, those below.
