The ECLAC Infrastructure Services Unit study on transport policies in the countries of Latin America shows that as the role of the State has weakened, especially since the 1990s, less use is being made of strategic planning instruments and tools.
The policies adopted in the region have segmented the development of activities that are by nature interrelated. There is no sustainable, longterm vision or suitable institutional framework with effective regulatory regimes and appropriate systems of supervision. The challenge is so large that it calls for reviewing the policies now in place in the region and adopting a new paradigm with a comprehensive, sustainable vision for infrastructure services. This review should immediately be placed on the development agenda, both for the countries and for the region as a whole.
