World Bank, the (WB)
This report takes stock of the World Bank’s efforts and experience in building resilient transport infrastructure and systems to climate risks. The tools and approaches discussed in the report -from upstream sectoral and spatial planning to post-disaster risk and recovery support, from infrastructure system solutions and support to building an enabling environment- have all been piloted, and all contribute to reducing climate risks and increasing the resilience of transport systems. However, most of these efforts are new and evolving, and large gaps in knowledge and capacity remain. This report makes the case for a more systematic approach in responding to communities and governments that ask, “How can we reach development, poverty, and shared-prosperity goals while considering current and future climate change".
