Open Contracting in Infrastructure

Better infrastructure is essential to improving lives. Achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals depends on infrastructure that supports the delivery of vital services, creates economic opportunities, and protects against climate change. Meeting these needs requires that citizens, public and private and investors have confidence that the risks inherent to infrastructure projects are adequately addressed.

To improve infrastructure governance and the business environment, officials, investors, and communities require accurate and timely data. Robust transparency, accountability, and participation mechanisms must be in place. Strengthening these critical building blocks supports safer, higher-quality, and more resilient infrastructure.
