Climate-Smart PPPs: Further Reading and Resources
- Incorporating Climate Risk in PBC Contracting Recommendations Task 5 Report, Final Draft, World Bank Group 2018 - Report aims to provide a risk assessment framework that will allow governments to properly assess the risks and impacts of climate change and assign these risks to the party best able to manage them within the performance-based contract (PBC) strategy.
Draft Guiding Principles on People-First Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), Part II, UNECE 2018- The UNECE is currently elaborating the Guiding Principles on People-First Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Principle No 7 refers specifically to resilience and climate change.
- Resilient Infrastructure Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs): Contract and Procurement – The Case of India, World Bank, 2018 – Country report initiated by the World Bank (Global Infrastructure Facility - GIF), the Tokyo Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Hub, and the Public-Private Advisory Facility (PPIAF) on how disaster risk management and climate change impacts are being addressed in PPP frameworks and projects. The report is based on a review of PPP policies, legislation and contracts as well as lessons learned and recommendations for further measures.
- Resilient Infrastructure Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs): Contracts and Procurement – The Case of Japan, World Bank 2017 - Country report initiated by the World Bank (GIF), the Tokyo Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Hub, and PPIAF on how disaster risk management and climate change impacts are being addressed in PPP frameworks and projects. The report is based on a review of PPP policies, legislation and contracts as well as lessons learned and recommendations for further measures.

- Smart Mobility PPPs in Latin America and the Caribbean, The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF) 2015– This report looks at the state of smart mobility in Latin America and focuses on new methods to manage mobility and innovative means of transport, and will examine the viability of using public-private partnerships (PPPs) to advance smart mobility solutions in the region.
- Public-Private Partnerships and Infrastructure Resilience - How PPPs Can Influence More Durable Approaches to U.S. Infrastructure Eric Boyer, Rich Cooper, and Janet Kavinoky - This paper investigates how a PPP approach to infrastructure delivery influences the potential for a facility to become more resilient to natural disasters or terrorist attacks. Conclusions suggest that even though PPPs are not at a panacea for improving infrastructure resilience, they provide a number of structural conditions and incentives that, if properly leveraged, can influence the overall resilience and economic return of U.S. infrastructure facilities

- Adapting Infrastructure to Climate Change, Commission Staff Working Document, European Commission 2013 - This paper presents the contribution of the European Union to climate change adaptation in selected infrastructure sectors. It covers energy and transport infrastructure as well as buildings in the EU. The paper also discusses the instruments and financing provided by the European Union to make Europe's infrastructure more climate resilient.
- Guidelines for climate proofing investment in the energy sector: Energy infrastructure projects, ADB 2013 - This publication provides a step-by-step methodological approach to help project teams assess and incorporate climate change adaptation measures into energy investment projects. While the focus of the guidelines is at the project level, an improved understanding of climate change impacts should also be used to incorporate climate change considerations into energy planning and policy at the country level.
- Guidelines for climate proofing investment in the transport sector: Road infrastructure projects ADB 2011 - This publication provides a step-by-step methodological approach to help project teams assess and incorporate climate change adaptation measures into energy investment projects. While the focus of the guidelines is at the project level, an improved understanding of climate change impacts should also be used to incorporate climate change considerations into energy planning and policy at the country level.

Climate Change Frameworks, Data and Tools
World Bank Group’s Climate Change Knowledge Portal (CCKP) - Hub for climate-related information, data, and tools. The Portal provides an online platform for access to comprehensive global, regional, and country data related to climate change and development.
Copernicus Climate Data Store (CDS) - Platform intends to support adaptation and mitigation policies by providing free access to climate data based on the best available science and tools for interpreting that data. This platform is a one-stop shop for information about the climate: past present and future. It provides easy access to a wide range of climate datasets via a searchable catalogue. Includes “CDS infrastructure” which is designed to provide a single entry point for users to discover and process data and products from distributed data repositories.
European Climate-Adapt Platform - Platform developed by the European Commission and European Environment Agency to provide comprehensive, reliable data to inform adaptation decisions. It includes data on projected climate change impacts, adaptation case studies, EU Sector Policies, as well as adaptation support tools for assessing, identifying, and managing climate change impacts.
Argentina’s Climate Risks Map System (SIMARCC): Interactive website developed by the Argentinian government’s National Climate Change Office that provides risk maps covering different scenarios of threats and vulnerabilities related to climate change. This platform combines georeferenced data on the potential hazards from climate change with data on social vulnerabilities. This tool was designed to be useful for decision makers in the public and private sectors
Brazil’s AdaptaClima Platform: the AdaptaClima platform intends to support the dissemination of information and material on climate change to decision makers. It is an interactive and collaborative space for sharing tools, studies and methodologies. The development of the platform was coordinated by the Brazilian Ministry of Environment.
