Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) are a key entry point to integrate climate adaptation and resilience into infrastructure projects and address climate change impacts. Yet, while there is a strong body of knowledge on guidance for PPPs and literature on climate risks, resilience, and infrastructure, countries lack information on how to bring those two fields together.
GCA has developed the CRIO Handbook with support from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management of the Netherlands and in close partnership with the World Bank Group (WBG), the African Development Bank (AfDB), Asian Development Bank (ADB), European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Global Infrastructure Facility (GIF), Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB), Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility (PPIAF) of the WBG, and UNOPS.
The Handbook aims to build the upstream capacity of practitioners to integrate climate resilience into infrastructure PPPs. It identifies the key entry points across the PPP project cycle to integrate resilience and provides the necessary tools and knowledge for practitioners.
