The word infrastructure brings to mind transport and roads. However, irrigation, energy and information and communication technology are also part of a resilient infrastructure. In order to improve education, healthcare or drinking water, infrastructure is indispensable because it facilitates mobility and connectedness. It is crucial in our daily lives.
Without roads or transport, it would be hard for children to attend school. For adults, it would be hard to find employment, do business, receive information or buy groceries. In other words, improved infrastructure makes it easier to achieve other goals and enhances quality of life.
Every day, Witteveen+Bos contributes to a resilient infrastructure through its projects. Infrastructure promotes trade – from small farmers being able to bring their products to market and be informed about fair prices to African businesses that can start trading across the continent and overseas.
