Convening the world’s most senior leaders in infrastructure and capital projects to identify ways to improve the delivery of infrastructure and get more out of existing assets.

Our research suggests up to 40 percent of global infrastructure and capital project investment is poorly spent because of bottlenecks, lack of innovation, and market failures. lapetitemort.info established the GII to address these issues, promote economic growth, and contribute to more resilient and secure communities.
