Why Investing in Smart Infrastructure in Latin America Pays Off

“Smart infrastructure responds intelligently to changes in its environment . . . to achieve an improved performance.” (Royal Academy of Engineering)

Modern smart infrastructure projects in energy, mining, water, transportation, and communications greatly reduce energy used, greenhouse gases emitted and natural resources consumed. They maximize efficiency in operations, supply chains, and distribution. By preserving and leveraging Latin America’s rich environment and natural systems, smart infrastructure also cuts the costs of negative impacts from the environment and local communities. New technology is spurring these developments.
