Summary from infrastructure Australia website on capturing value

This publication is the first of Infrastructure Australia’s Reform Series. It provides guidance to governments and the private sector on how value capture can be applied in the Australian context.

This advisory paper argues that value capture can work in Australia and should be regularly considered for all public infrastructure projects, but with realistic expectations about the role it can play in funding the infrastructure we need.

Both this paper and the Australian Infrastructure Plan highlight the importance of diversifying the available sources of infrastructure funding and the need for high quality and long-term strategic planning of future infrastructure projects.
