What is infrastructure?
Infrastructure is the network of systems and facilities that make up our day to day lives. They serve a variety of areas from countries down to neighborhoods and inform the movement of things like water supply, the power grid, and for things that encourage economic development.
Infrastructure is an important part of encouraging the growth and prosperity of an area or business. Learning about building basic infrastructures and different examples of infrastructure is an important step. The stability of this network is vital to ensuring that a society can survive and grow. These interrelated systems provide the things we need and ensure our lives are smooth and maintain a certain standard of living. Many infrastructure systems are a mix of public-private partnerships that provide commodities to the public.
