Governance of infrastructure: International best practices and innovations

The Governance of infrastructure: International best practices and innovations study shows that infrastructure policy in Germany needs new instruments and processes to counteract the lack of efficiency in the planning and execution of infrastructure projects.  New financing opportunities are needed to cover the growing need for investment in this sector. The study, authored by Helmut K. Anheier, past President of the Hertie School; Marcel Fratzscher, President of DIW Berlin; and Bernhard Lorentz, a partner at Ernst & Young, finds possible solutions by examining best practice cases from other countries. These include special systems or long-term national infrastructure plans that have been implemented successfully.
