CAT-I

Capacity Assessment Tool for Infrastructure

The Capacity Assessment Tool for Infrastructure (CAT-I) is a tool developed by UNOPS to help countries facilitate better infrastructure development. The tool is designed to help governments identify gaps or challenges in the capacity of their enabling environment to plan, deliver, and manage sustainable, resilient, and inclusive infrastructure systems. Examples of the types of capacities assessed, include:
• Ability to identify the need for new assets or upgrades to existing assets based on current or future needs, including the achievement of development goals and aspirations
• Existence and quality of policies and processes for the management of risk within the built environment
• Existence and quality of codes, standards, and processes to support the proper design and construction of infrastructure
• Cross sector topics like human skill sets, procurement processes, legal mechanisms, quality assurance and quality control mechanisms, and financial resources which support the planning, delivery and management of infrastructure
• Ability to safely manage, operate, upgrade and decommission/repurpose infrastructure systems at end of useful life

Based on the identified gaps or challenges faced by governments, the tool can then be used to develop a pipeline of projects to build national, state, city, or ministerial capacity using technical and advisory support.

To date, the tool has been used in: Nepal; Serbia; Mato Grosso State, Brazil; Turkana County, Kenya; and in three cities in The Gambia.

CB-Cities

Berkeley group is actively developing such a large-scale and high-fidelity traffic simulation model for several big cities around the world. It builds upon the concept of Agent Based Modelling (ABM), where individual citizens are represented by intelligent agents. An agent is capable of navigating in a graph representation of the city’s road network along an optimum path, while maintaining interactions with other agents and dynamically re-planning the route in response to traffic congestion or road closures. The model can accommodate millions of agents and run simulations as in real time.

CIrcle

Ciritical Infrastrctures Relations and Consequences for Life and Environment

CIrcle is a tool to support the analysis of domino effects of critical infrastructure failure. It gives insight into how the effects of shocks and stresses on one type of infrastructure can lead to subequent effects on other types of critical infrastructure.
Users define the dependencies between Critical Infrastructures and CIrcle facilitates the discussion between interdependent stakeholders, building trust and stimulating future partnerships.

CIrcle’s approach:

  • Gather (open) data on critical and vulnerable infrastructure
  • Gather expert knowledge on direct impacts and dependencies
  • Combine data with expert knowledge to conduct cascading effect analyses
  • Complement risk assessments with gained insights on indirect effects
  • Increase cooperation between stakeholders

Users are governmental organizations and agencies, network operators, emergency response organizations as well as large industries who are interested in the dependencies between Critical Infrastructures.

City Scan

Rapid urbanization is transforming the planet and the way we live. For the first time in history, more people live in cities than in rural areas, and 90 percent of this urban expansion is taking place in developing countries. Urbanization, if managed well, can help reduce poverty and increase prosperity, as cities can accelerate growth, attract investment, spur innovation and enhance productivity. Poorly managed urbanization, however, can exacerbate existing challenges – including insecure livelihoods, inadequate provision of infrastructure and services, poor urban and systems planning, inadequate oversight of land use and building standards – and leave cities more vulnerable to natural hazards.

In this context, the World Bank Group’s (WBG) City Resilience Program (CRP) is an effort to engage city governments in a long-term partnership to identify areas of need and opportunity and to define a robust response towards building resilience. A broad coalition of experts and working groups accompanies each city-level engagement from program design to implementation to ensure an integrated, risk-informed and spatially driven approach.

The CRP has developed an assessment tool and framework that provides a rapid assessment of the critical development challenges that cities face using publicly available data. The City Scan aims to serve as a conversation starter between the World Bank task team and client city to assess cities’ investment priorities and financing needs in six broad areas, namely: (i) population trends, (ii) city competitiveness and economic growth, (iii) access to infrastructure and public services, (iv) urban transport and mobility, (v) climate mitigation, and (vi) municipal finance and institutions. Each of these areas is informed by various sources of global flood risk information to integrate the needs and challenges of both the built and natural environments.

In addition, other supplementary information (i.e., pedestrian and public transport accessibility, building footprints, and historic and near-real time flood monitoring, among others), in collaboration with different spatial data and remote sensing service providers, are considered in this assessment to tailor fit the City Scan to cities’ specific investment needs. The City Scan is currently being piloted in 14 cities in Sub-Saharan Africa, and is anticipated to be scaled up to other regions in the next phase of engagement.

CWRA

City Water Resilience Approach

The City Water Resilience Approach (CWRA) responds to a demand for innovative approaches and tools that help cities build water resilience at the urban scale. The CWRA was developed to help cities grow their capacity to provide high quality water resources for all residents, to protect them from water-related hazards, and to connect them through water-based transportation networks (“provide, protect, connect”).

The approach is the result of fieldwork and desk research, collaborative partnerships with subject matter experts, and direct engagement with city partners. Based on this research, the CWRA outlines a process for developing urban water resilience, and provides a suite of tools to help cities grow their capacity to survive and thrive in the face of water-related shocks and stresses. The approach details five steps to guide cities through initial stakeholder engagement and baseline assessment, through action planning, implementation and monitoring of new initiatives that build water resilience.

Green Evaluation

We base our evaluation of an adaptation project on the increase in resilience the project is likely to provide for the covered geographical area or asset base. This results in the adaptation score.

First, we quantitatively evaluate the benefit of the added resilience, relative to the amount of the financing’s proceeds, on a five-point scale.

The benefit is the forecast reduction in the cost of expected damages caused by extreme weather events. It is based on an entity’s analysis, to which we may apply quantitative adjustments.

Second, we modify the evaluation score determined in the first step, based on our qualitative view of the adequacy of an entity’s quantification approach to determining the resilience benefit.

Third, we may apply additional adjustments in certain cases – for example, for projects that are in developing countries for which the resilience benefit may be understated because the likely significant social benefits are difficult to quantify.

ICLEI ACCCRN

ICLEI ACCCRN Process Workbook

The ICLEI ACCCRN Process (IAP) enables local governments to assess their climate risks in the context of urbanisation, poverty and vulnerability and formulate corresponding resilience strategies. The ICLEI ACCCRN Process has been designed in a step-by-step format, divided into 6 phases. Phases 5 and 6 that guide cities in the implementation and monitoring phases will be included in the following edition of the IAP toolkit. The process is also designed to be a continuous cycle of review and refinement, rather than a closed cycle.

The phases are:

  1. Phase 1 of the process will provide all the tools and activities needed to start work with the city. The tools help local governments gain the necessary political and administrative support, establish a climate core team, involve local stakeholders, appropriately share relevant information through a tailored communications plan, and conduct an initial assessment of the city’s progress towards dealing with climate change.
  2. In Phase 2 the main impacts of climate change faced by the city are identified through shared learning dialogues and interactions with the climate core team. The fragile urban systems facing climate threats are also identified and prioritised according to their risk status.
  3. Phase 3 will assist the city government in producing climate vulnerability hotspot maps, in identifying the vulnerable social groups, and in analysing their adaptive capacities as well as those of the impacted urban systems.
  4. In Phase 4, city governments will use the information and analysis from the previous Phases to develop a list of potential resilience building interventions. The tools in this phase help screen and prioritise these interventions, link them to existing city plans, and compile all the information into a City Resilience Strategy.

RAPTA

Resilience, Adaptation Pathways and Transformation Assessment Framework

The Resilience, Adaptation Pathways and Transformation Assessment Framework (RAPTA) is a unique tool to build ideas of resilience, adaption and transformation into a project from the start, to ensure outcomes that are practicable, valuable and sustainable through time and change. It also aligns approaches and monitoring towards common objectives, contributing to integrated strategies, and pursuing synergies in reporting between the Rio Conventions. Use of RAPTA will assist development initiatives to generate sustained positive impacts.
The RAPTA guidelines give practical guidance on the application of RAPTA in project design. The guidelines are targeted at practitioners working with local stakeholders to devise effective development projects that build resilience to shocks, stresses, and major external change.
In addition, RAPTA offers a fresh dimension to the familiar task of project planning and development – one which allows for rapid social, physical and environmental change in an uncertain world – leading to projects which deliver better results, more durably, reliably and consistently.

SAVi

Sustainable Asset Valuation

Policy makers, infrastructure planners and investors all ask about the value-added of sustainable infrastructure.

  • Are such assets more expensive to plan and build and finance?
  • Do they bring better value for money?
  • What are the risks associated with greener designs and cleaner technologies?

We are also waking up to reality of climate change and range of other environmental, social and economic risks. Insurance firm Swiss Re, estimates that in 2017, the economic losses from natural disasters was US$ 306 billion. This is almost the double of the losses in 2016, which was US$ 188 billion and also much higher than the 10-year-average of $190 billion.

Such risks and externalities are typically ignored in infrastructure finance analyses. The MAVA Foundation and IISD built SAVi to address such inconsistencies. We built SAVi to make the investment case for sustainable infrastructure.

Using SAVi

SAVi incorporates 3 fundamental features:

Valuation: SAVi values in financial terms, the material risks and co-benefits of infrastructure projects. We work with governments and investors to identify the risks material to their projects and design appropriate simulation scenarios.

Simulation: SAVi is unique in that it combines the results of systems thinking and system dynamics simulation with project finance modelling. We work with governments and investors to identify the material risks of each infrastructure project. We also identify co-benefits that contribute towards realising the UN sustainable development goals. We then determine the simulation scenarios.

Bespoke: The application of SAVi is bespoke. We customise SAVi to each individual infrastructure project. Such an approach is required as each project is characteristic of distinctive opportunities and risks.

SAVi can hence answered questions such as:

  • Do sustainable infrastructure assets bring better financial returns than business-as-usual counterparts?
  • What additional capital is required to make this asset more resilient to changing climates?
  • In a given pipeline or portfolio, which asset make the higher contributions toward the UN Sustainable Development Goals?

The SAVi website is under construction.

The Standard for Sustainable and Resilience Infrastructure (SuRe®)

SuRe® – the Standard for Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure is a third-party-verified, global voluntary standard, which drives the integration of sustainability and resilience aspects into infrastructure development and upgrade by providing guidance for infrastructure project developers, financiers and public-sector institutions. The Standard assesses infrastructure throughout the project life cycle at the design, construction and operational phases. SuRe® consists of 14 themes covering 61 criteria across environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in addition to two general reporting requirements for impact measurement.

SuRe® can be applied to all types of infrastructure, including critical infrastructure systems and infrastructure services, such as: Water (harvesting, storage, management, distribution, treatment and recycling); Energy (generation, storage and distribution); Solid waste (collection, distribution, processing, recycling and storage); Transport networks, nodes and fleet (pedestrian, bicycle, vehicular, rail, water-borne and air transportation); Communication networks (telephone, cellular and data); Social infrastructure (education, healthcare, sports and recreation, law enforcement, fire and emergency services); Food systems (production, storage, processing and distribution).

SuRe® development followed the ISEAL Alliance Codes of Good Practice for standard setting, and as of October 2018, SuRe® is the first infrastructure standard to be an Associate Member of ISEAL, the global membership association for credible and good practice in sustainability standards. Other members of ISEAL include FSC, Fair Trade, Better Cotton Initiative BCI, SA 8000 and others. The first certifiable version of the SuRe® Standard was released at COP23 2017. Since then, SuRe® has entered into the SuRe® Initial Implementation Phase 2018-2019 whereby projects will be assessed on all SuRe® material criteria and, if compliant, be awarded a SuRe® certification.

GIB has also developed the self-assessment tool based on the SuRe®, called The SmartScan. The SmartScan is an infrastructure self-assessment tool developed on the basis of the SuRe® Standard for Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure, that provides a rapid assessment of an infrastructure project against sustainability and resilience criteria covering Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues.

SmartScan offers cities and project owners a practical and rapid way to:

  • enhance their awareness about sustainability and resilience-related good practices;
  • prepare projects for the scrutiny of financial services;
  • increase the project attractiveness for potential investment.

The SmartScan has been applied to more than 25 infrastructure projects in the sectors of Water, Energy, Transport networks, Communication technologies installations, in countries such as China, Mexico, India, Philippines, Kosovo and Ecuador, with a total CAPEX of 18 Billions USD

UCRA

The Urban Community Resilience Assessment

The Urban Community Resilience Assessment (UCRA) helps cities incorporate individual and community capacities—social cohesion, familiarity with local climate risks, early warning systems and disaster readiness—into broader urban resilience evaluations. By analysing these local capabilities, the UCRA provides a snapshot of preparedness behaviours, risk perception and the strength of neighbourhood relationships. These findings enable individuals to identify context-specific adaptation actions and allow policymakers to engage community members in urban resilience planning.
