Abstract

Written in response to the question ‘What governance innovations are needed to enable infrastructure development to contribute to the creation of sustainable and inclusive cities?’ This paper outlines important characteristics of infrastructure, briefly explores what is meant by the terms ‘sustainable infrastructure’ and ‘inclusive infrastructure’ and in this context proposes the development of Purposeful and Systemic Infrastructure Governance to support delivery of the above objective. Explanation is given of why these approaches to infrastructure governance are needed. More broadly the need for, and potential value of Purposeful Infrastructure Governance and Systemic Infrastructure Governance as an approach to infrastructure decision making focused on framing infrastructure decisions at the systems level, and involving citizens and infrastructure practitioners in development of a shared, structured and systemic vision of the outcomes society expects infrastructure to enable.
