Regional Investment as a Theme in Public Works Policy Making and Management
Policy decisions regarding investment in public works such as water systems, highways, or public buildings are important decisions for local public officials. The management of these investments over time is equally important. However, information about public works investments across a region is often inadequate. Individual jurisdictions and authorities often have good information about the public works for which they are directly responsible but far less complete information about public works that are the responsibility of overlapping or nearby entities that are relevant to the effective functioning of a region. Systematic analyses of the consequences of particular investment or management decisions on the region and its subareas can improve understanding of those choices. © 2003, SAGE Publications.
