“It's cost categorization for all the costs that go into a project to build something – any infrastructure project. And we are defining infrastructure in the widest possible way – so building, roads, and cities. And what it does is it provides the categories for cost spend, so that they can be compared. It’s very simple!”

“What’s unique about this project is that it’s international. And that it’s a partnership of many different organizations, so it will be implemented consistently around the world.”
