Practical definition of criticality regarding road infrastructure

Source(s):  Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)

This document was prepared as part of the assignment, commissioned by the Global Initiative on Disaster Risk Management, to assist countries in Latin American and the Caribbean in organizing their infrastructure in terms of disaster risks. It is structured as follows: The process used to construct the assessment and prioritization tool is explained. The final criticality model is presented in its different components (goal, criteria, sub-criteria and indicators).

The process to obtain the weights of the criteria and global measurement ruler is introduced. Cardinal scales are introduced to allow for the assessment of projects and the project’s classification thresholds according to the associated criticality level. The project assessment tool is presented and some example projects are assessed to calibrate the measurement ruler and the developed scales. Some considerations are given on how to use the tool. Lastly, the main conclusions drawn during the workshop and subsequent analysis are shared as well as some recommendations.
