The first National Infrastructure Assessment was published by the National Infrastructure Commission in 2018. Work on the second assessment is already underway and is due to be published in 2023. As well as looking at specific areas such as digital infrastructure, renewable energy, transportation, cities, and water, it also examined how best to choose and design, and fund and finance infrastructure. The Assessment was used as a basis to develop the UK’s first National Infrastructure Strategy.
This discussion aims to draw lessons from the UK’s experience to ensure investments in infrastructure deliver better value and better outcomes.
