CoST high-income country study – overarching report

CoST has released the final publication in its series exploring the need for infrastructure transparency in high-income countries and the added value of CoST in these contexts.

CoST uses case studies from Argentina, Lithuania, Scotland and additional research from the UK and Denmark to delve into common project issues and show how they can be resolved to deliver better quality infrastructure, on time and to budget.

We find that the CoST core features of disclosure, assurance, multi-stakeholder working, and social accountability can provide an effective means of rectifying fundamental sectoral issues which exist across the case studies explored. CoST features can provide direct solutions – put simply – to a need to increase sophisticated data disclosure, stakeholder engagement, civic participation and scrutiny and oversight.
