2014 - International - Challenging the Build-Neglect-Rebuild Paradigm: Maintaining Infrastructure in the Pacific


2014 - International - Challenging the  Build-Neglect-Rebuild Paradigm:  Maintaining Infrastructure in the  Pacific

Report from PRIF outlining the three factors need to be addressed if Pacific island countries, in partnership with development partners, are to deliver sustainable infrastructure services. These factors relate to resource constraints, organisational capabilities and incentives. There is no silver bullet that will address all three constraints to asset management. Rather, a range of initiative and reforms are required in order to ensure organisations and governments have adequate incentives, skills, and resources to deliver services. Careful planning of delivering service to local areas, urban and rural, and collaboration among service providers is also required if Pacific island countries are to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
