The Urban Land Institute (ULI) has released a report, entitled Infrastructure 2011: A Strategic Priority. This is the fifth in a series of annual reports co-produced by ULI and Ernst & Young that assesses the state of infrastructure in the United States and around the world. Based on extensive interviews with industry experts and research, this report surveys global infrastructure trends and activities in 2011 and then examines in depth current U.S. infrastructure policy and the outlook for meeting the nation’s significant repair and rebuilding challenges. The report reviews national infrastructure strategies in a variety of countries, noting that most have put in place serious efforts to identify and address infrastructure deficiencies and chart a course toward lower energy and oil consumption. It contrasts these approaches with those in the United States, which at a national level still lacks a coherent infrastructure strategy and struggles to give infrastructure the priority it deserves.
