A G20 INITIATIVE

InfraCompass

DRAWING DATA FROM

InfraCompass is a tool for infrastructure policy makers, it objectively quantifies the strength of the infrastructure enabling environment by aggregating data for 81 countries, collectively representing 93% of global GDP and 86% of the world population. It aims to help governments and policy specialists assess where a country is performing well and where there are opportunities for improvement, allowing them to identify policies that will lead to better public and private infrastructure investment.

Investigate Top Performers in Each Driver

InfraCompass ranks countries across eight drivers: Governance, Regulatory Frameworks, Permits, Planning, Procurement, Activity, Funding Capacity, and Financial Markets. These eight drivers are underpinned by 41 individual metrics.

Who are the top performers?

Select a driver to see the Top 10 performing countries for that driver.

Alternatively, select a flag to go to that country’s page to see details of their performance.   

* While data is reported for the Pacific Island countries of Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu, they're not included in the rankings due to data coverage limitations.

Identify Areas for Priority Action

InfraCompass helps governments identify strengths and areas for priority action by highlighting each country’s top three performing metrics as well as the three metrics with the greatest opportunities for improvement on a country’s overall performance. Links to best practice materials are also provided to guide users on practical next steps.

Compare Countries, Regions and Income Groups

Select up to 6 countries, regions or income groups to compare their performance.

Performance across income groups

This spider chart compares driver performance across all four income groups: High Income Countries, Upper Middle Income Countries, Lower Middle Income Countries, and Low Income Countries.  

Explore Relationships

How do countries’ infrastructure enabling environment relate to other macroeconomic and infrastructure variables?

Here we present three interesting insights, and invite you explore and create your own charts. 

When interpreting these charts, it should be noted that the relationships shown are correlation only and do not imply causation.

Data Providers

InfraCompass 2020 draws on data published by the World Bank, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the World Economic Forum (WEF), the International Monetary fund (IMF), BIS Oxford Economics, United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, IJ Global, Bloomberg, S&P Global, Trading Economics, Centre d'Études Prospectives et d'Informations Internationales (CEPII) and in-country research conducted by Deloitte. While members of some of these organisations were consulted as part of the Expert Advisory Panel, these organisations were not involved in the development or production of the tool beyond the provision of data.

Expert Advisory Panel

The development of InfraCompass 2020 has greatly benefited from the advice and contributions of our Expert Advisory Panel. This technical consultative body provided direction and insightful feedback on issues relating to data inputs, methodology and results.

The Expert Panel included, over the course of development of InfraCompass 2020, Sanjay Grover, Nancy Faraday-Smith, Kira Heymans, Cristiana Vitale, Alexis Durand, Lorenzo Casullo and Fernanda Ruiz Nunez.

The GI Hub is pleased to have partnered with Deloitte for InfraCompass 2020. The expertise, perspective and guidance of Deloitte contributed substantially to the InfraCompass framework refresh and helped enhance the InfraCompass tool for our users.
