Energy, transport, water and telecommunications allare essential to future development and growth.However, infrastructure investment requirements over the coming decades will be massive, running into trillions of dollars.How will the needed investsments be financed, given that OECD populations are ageing fast and public finances tightening? How will such factors as urbanisation, climate change and globalisation affect the development of infrastructures in OECD countries? And how will the role of the public sector and private actors evolve over time?

Reviews - What do customers think about Infrastructure to 2030: Telecom, Land Transport, Water and Electricity?
continuing buildout [especially in developing countries] Sep 24, 2006
This is a global look at how various infrastructures might be needed to change, to meet needs in 2030. One major area is telecom. Even in developed countries, extensive buildout is still occurring. Some trends include WiFi hotspots continuing to proliferate. Perhaps other technologies might supplant this. Nevertheless, there is clearly an unfilled need for more wireless access, at affordable rates.
Another telecom aspect is the usage of long distance fiber. Currently, there is still an overinvestment in the US, and part of Europe, as part of the legacy from the dot com and telecom craze of the 90s. But the anticipation is that new usages will ultimately fill this fiber.
The needs of the developing world also get attention. Here, fiber and wireless are considered to be very strong growth areas. Indeed, the book projects that by 2030, global subscribers from all nations to mobile and fixed telecoms will be 6.5 billion, from a current estimate of 3.1 billion in 2005. Ways to go!
