Why Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) are an important first step in incorporating climate resilience into infrastructure projects.
Climate change is a popular topic in the media. You don’t have to be a scientist to see that the world around us is changing. We have seen extreme weather events all over the world in the last few years, from bush fires in Australia and the United States to flooding in Belgium and Germany, landslides caused by heavy rains in Brazil, and, in India, this year saw the highest temperatures recorded for March and April; a staggering 47 degrees centigrade.
The strains and shocks caused by weather-related occurrences harm and destroy our infrastructure. The World Bank estimates that the yearly cost of infrastructure interruptions to households and companies worldwide is around US$390 billion. Nature-based solutions provide a superior option and are frequently less expensive than traditional treatments, and they are being applied across the world. More education, however, is required so that we constantly consider working with nature rather than against it.
PPPs are an important entry point for incorporating climate adaptation and resilience into infrastructure projects. However, as Dr. Kevin Kariuki of the African Development Fund pointed out, there is a dearth of understanding about how PPPs may be used to manage climate risks and create climate-resilient infrastructure. As a result, they are introducing GCA’s Climate-Resilient Infrastructure Workshop program in 2022 to assist investment projects throughout the whole African Development Bank portfolio. The program includes a free manual and an online self-paced training course, as well as the opportunity to gain formal certification by passing an exam.
