Measuring the resilience impact of ADB’s urban investments

September 2018

Understanding how ADB’s infrastructure investments affect urban resilience to climate change is a complex challenge.

ADB measures and monitors the progress of infrastructure investments to ensure they are being built to high standards and that the infrastructure itself will cope with climate change and its impacts. However, what is not currently well understood is the impact of these urban infrastructure projects on people’s lives, and on the overall climate change resilience of the city itself.

To address this, the Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund (UCCRTF), is working to develop and apply a methodology for measuring the resilience impact of ADB investments at the city level. In this video Maliha Khan, principal at international development consultancy Daira and lead expert on measurement for the UCCRTF, explains why measuring resilience impact at the city level is so important.
