The book covers several aspects related to the main topic of infrastructural investment choices, particularly linked to the decision-making process through which investments are selected. The volume illustrates and critically analyses methodological issues, from the most traditional to the most recent ones, in order to emphasise the pros and cons connected with investment decisions with several references to economic activities, particularly to the transport sector. It poses a range of problems related to institutional structures, decision making processes, available tools and methodologies used for supporting investment choices. Authors analyse several case studies to show how it is possible to utilise theoretical suggestions in practical applications, thus identifying current difficulties and detecting possible tools to overcome them. Contributions are grouped by topics, namely: financial and economic aspects of public infrastructure investments, allocation criteria, decision-making models, mega-projects, dynamic analysis of transport infrastructure productivity, sustainable investments, financing and funding investments. This book is therefore an updated volume which is addressed to researchers, decision-makers, and advanced students who need to acquire a clear and new framework, as well as a toolbox, in the field of infrastructural investment decision-making processes. The need to publish this book stems from the absence of updated information, in the form of a book collection, of methodologies and case studies. This volume provides novelties in terms of new models applied to the transport sector, as well as to other fields where infrastructures have to be evaluated and decisions among different solutions have to be made.
