Global infrastructure firm AECOM has released its third annual global infrastructure report, The Future of Infrastructure: Creating opportunity for everyone, which illustrates the essential role infrastructure plays in addressing society’s most complex challenges. Critical themes include economic stimulus, funding, social value, innovation, resilience, climate change, sustainability and adapting for a post-pandemic world.

In response to the ongoing global coronavirus outbreak, the report shares insights on how to achieve both the immediate recovery needs of communities seeking safe and efficient ways to return to work and school, resume travel and deliver improved healthcare systems. It also captures how to advance the longer-term opportunities for infrastructure investment to strengthen economies and help build more resilient societies.

Guide for governments, policy-makers

“As countries begin to adjust to a world transformed by the devastating impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s Future of Infrastructure report can be a guide for governments and policy-makers looking for solutions to best respond to quality of life, operational and economic challenges on the path to recovery,” said Michael S. Burke, AECOM’s chairman and CEO.

“Infrastructure and new infrastructure investment can play important roles in accelerating economic recovery, making us more resilient, and reestablishing the connections between people that make us stronger.”
