Some countries simply have better things than one another. In all cases – this is one of life’s few true blanket statements – multiple variables factor into the respective equations to explain why some countries have better infrastructures than their counterparts, for example.
Brazil’s very own Felipe Montoro Jens is a consultant on all things infrastructure, including the country’s failing infrastructure plans.
Every country, state, locality, or other types of government has ongoing infrastructure plans. Some of them are as minor as patching up potholes on old dirt roads, whereas others might be as complex and pricy as constructing brand-new interstate highways.
Felipe Montoro Jens recently featured in a Brazil-based article that reported – the statistics hail from the National Confederation of Industry, the voice of Brazil’s industrial sector that was hired by the Ministry of Planning – roughly 2,800 public works that were once slated to have either been completed or picked up were not, in fact, in progress or finished.

Even though just two percent of the country’s gross domestic product was represented in those caught-up infrastructure projects, Felipe Montoro Jens reported that taking care of infrastructure issues in Brazil was traditionally difficult.
Things like companies abandoning their agreed-upon projects, financial issues, disputes over land ownership, and budget constraints were some of the most popular reasons for the 2,800-odd works that are still behind schedule not having been completed yet.
The National Confederation of Industries shared six things with the national government that could make delays shorter or circumvent them in the first place. The most important step to take was to improve macro- and micro-planning. Give teams better tools was another. The other three were improving the evaluation of modalities of execution, beefing up internal control, and start minting fairer contracts with builders.
