About INFRACON 2018

Inadequate infrastructure is widely recognized to hold back developing countries and lowering the quality of life of its citizens. The traffic jams of Nairobi, power cuts of Nigeria or the water shortages that currently afflict Harare and Bulawayo are some of the examples. The same is true for fast-growing regions of Latin America and many other parts of Asia. It is widely agreed from Addis Ababa to Brasilia, New Delhi and beyond that infrastructural innovation and development is a key priority. Thus, deploying efficient and effective infrastructural solutions with limited resources is not only a challenging task but also a key-enabler for the developing countries. But what kind of infrastructure is needed? Developing countries are building new environments which must meet the needs of their present and future generations. We need to ensure that these meet peoples’ aspirations within an altered but sustainable and socially acceptable ecological framework. But every society should be allowed to make its own decisions, in accordance with its own preferences, so long as they do not have a negative impact beyond their borders. The aim of this conference is bringing together international researchers, students, public officers, policy makers and practitioners in the infrastructural domain to discuss issues and trends, recent research, innovation advances and on-the-field experiences related to Governance, Infrastructure, and Business with a special focus on developing countries.
