Construction

“Infrastructure is not just bricks and mortar, but a bridge to the future”  – MukhisaKituyi, Secretary General of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD)

The Challenge

The provision of proper infrastructure is critical for social and economic advancement across developing economies. From the transport systems that carry people to work to the energy grids that provide homes with electricity, the prosperity of a given economy is intimately linked to the quality of its infrastructure.

It is therefore vital that the infrastructure gap – the gap in quality and quality of infrastructure between developed and developing economies – is closed over the coming decades. In Africa alone, this gap stands to be USD 1.59 trillion by 2040 without urgent intervention (ACCA 2019), with the rising prevalence of natural disasters in many countries necessitating more resilient buildings, bridges, roads, energy grids and water systems.

The global malnutrition burden

2.6% estimated increase in GDP per capita across Africa that closing the infrastructure quality and quantity gap with the developed world will bring

$390m the estimated cost to households and firms in low- and middle-income countries due to disruption to infrastructure

$18 bn the estimated cost of damage to power generation and transport infrastructure caused each year by natural disasters in low- and middle-income countries

$4 the net benefit for every dollar invested in more resilient infrastructure in low- and middle-income countries

$1.59 tn the gap in quality and quantity of infrastructure between Africa and developed economies by 2040 if current trends continue

155% the increase of suspected cholera incidence rates after one day of disruption to water infrastructure in the Democratic Republic of Congo
