The CoST Initiative works with governments, industry and local communities around the world to get better value from public infrastructure investment by increasing transparency and accountability.
As a multi-stakeholder initiative with 15 participating countries, CoST promotes transparency by disclosing data from public infrastructure investment. This helps to inform and empower citizens, enabling them to hold decision-makers to account.
