Infrastructure Development in the Commonwealth

The countries of the Commonwealth face diverse and substantial challenges in the development and modernisation of their infrastructure. Commonwealth Infrastructure Partners implements a comprehensive approach to provide integrated and lasting solutions to these challenges.

Every Commonwealth country has its own unique set of challenges, and these vary from one sector to another. They include:

  • Lack of physical resources
  • Lack of financial resources
  • Lack of integration between public and private sectors
  • Inadequate exposure to international best practice
  • Lack of management and technical capability, and deficient skills training

A common thread running through all these factors is inadequate implementation capability as a result of deploying insufficient resources in capacity building. A focus on human resource development can often unlock resources and create domestic & international confidence, leading the way to progressive national development.
