Unlocking Opportunities for Asia and the Pacific
Infrastructure has played a critical role in Asia and the Pacific’s rapid economic growth. Roads, bridges, and power networks, among other assets, are part of people’s daily lives, and a foundation for their economic opportunity. But increasing disaster risks and climate change is forcing us to rethink how we manage infrastructure. This publication identifies opportunities to deliver resilient infrastructure across developing Asia. It takes a holistic view of practices that affect infrastructure resilience, including risk assessment, investment appraisal, and operation and maintenance across the life cycle of an asset, as well as overarching approaches to achieving system-wide resilience, financing, and governance objectives.
