Inclusive Infrastructure / References
The Global Infrastructure Hub (GI Hub) has developed the Reference Tool under one of its key mandate areas: to develop and promote leading practices for delivering quality infrastructure.
The GI Hub team, Morag Baird, Jack Handford, Ping Fu, Rahadian Zulfadin and Stephanie Barker, worked closely with Atkins Acuity to lead the development of a holistic Reference Tool for Inclusive Infrastructure. Atkins Acuity uses its wide expertise to provide social, technical and financial advice on infrastructure projects around the world, delivering results-driven advisory solutions to large institutional programs and infrastructure assets.
The Reference Tool also incorporates contributions from various governments, academics, private companies and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Many people have helped the project team by providing literature sources and expert input, as well as identifying projects and stakeholders to contribute to the preparation of case studies.
The project was also supported by a dedicated consultative board that provided insight, identified projects, and reviewed content. The board members have been involved throughout the project, and we would like to thank them for their valuable contribution.
Two consultation workshops were held while the Reference Tool was in draft format. Government officials attended the workshops from 10 countries across Africa and Latin America, and their contributions informed the final development of the Reference Tool.
