Gaps and Governance Standards of Public Infrastructure in Chile

Infrastructure Governance Review

image of Gaps and Governance Standards of Public Infrastructure in Chile

Chile’s planning and governance framework has supported the roll-out of high quality and efficient infrastructure that has been a key enabler of the country’s rapid development over the past two decades. However, changing circumstances such as climate change, decentralisation and a greater focus on social and territorial equity now require a change in how infrastructure needs are identified and addressed. This review examines Chile’s infrastructure stock and governance standards in light of the country’s 2030 growth agenda and OECD benchmarks, and sets out how such change can be achieved, with a special focus on transport and water infrastructure.

Executive summary

Chile’s infrastructure planning and governance framework has supported the roll-out of a range of high quality and efficient infrastructure systems in areas such as intercity highways, deep-sea ports, airports and urban water services, many of which that have made key contributions to the country’s rapid development over the past two decades. Chile will still need to deliver large amounts of infrastructure in the years ahead as it strives to achieve high-income status. However, changing circumstances, many of which are a consequence of the country’s development, are driving a shift in the country’s needs, which will require, in turn, adjustments as to what kind of infrastructure is planned and how it is governed.
