$32.00 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Abstract:

Because of insufficient investment, inadequate planning, poor maintenance and unsustainable sector governance, most DAC partner countries ‐ especially lowincome countries ‐ suffer from huge gaps in infrastructure. Without major progress, it will be impossible for these countries to significantly reduce poverty and achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Thus a better approach is needed to ensure substantial, sustained improvements in development of and access to infrastructure facilities and services, especially by poor people. The main challenge is to foster a dynamic growth process that develops infrastructure services and involves and benefits the poor.
