The Future of Cities Depends on Innovative Financing

Ever-more people move into cities, and as the urbanisation trend continues, it is projected that hundreds of trillions of dollars will be needed for investment in urban infrastructure in upcoming decades. Where will all the money come from? Well, as we have written about previously on this blog, in general the  lack  of  investable  projects  seems  to  be  the  main  issue preventing  sustainable  infrastructure  investment  at  scale,  rather than  the  lack  of  finance.

Today Harvard Business Review published an interesting article on financing models, written by John D. Macomber. The article is about innovative financing of cities and it is available to read on this link.
