Infrastructure Future Scenarios

Climate change, technological transformations, rapidly urbanizing societies and increasing political polarization are just a few of the many trends shaping the future of infrastructure. In many cases, the scale of their effects is only matched by the speed with which they are occurring. Infrastructure - the most long-term of assets - needs to be prepared for an uncertain future.   

A partnership between the Forum and the Global Infrastructure Hub, the Hub has designed three scenarios covering a variety of potential future situations based on the results of a wide-ranging survey, and will assemble long-term strategies based on these three scenarios.
