Infrastructure contributes to poverty reduction by spurring economic growth, stimulating enterprise opportunities, generating employment and providing poor people with access to basic services. Many developing countries are faced with massive infrastructure deficits that inhibit development. Many of the poorest have limited or no sustainable access to infrastructure services such as water, sanitation, energy and transport.
Aurecon is committed to supporting the development of sustainable infrastructure systems, resilient to disasters and climate change. We believe that access to basic infrastructure services is a basic human necessity and strive to extend access to marginalised groups.
Aurecon is also committed to developing innovative partnerships with the private sector to help meet infrastructure needs.
