Beyond the Gap – How Countries Can Afford the Infrastructure They Need while Protecting the Planet
Researchers from GCF (Adaptation and Social Learning research process) contributed to a recent World Bank report on global infrastructure investments. They provided the chapter in coastal protection infrastructure needs under different socio-economic and climate scenarios. Failure to secure the appropriate financial tools, institutions, and governance mechanisms to ensure maintenance – and thus continuous protection over time – would increase risk and could result in catastrophic failures. Absent a firm commitment to reliable maintenance, a combination of nature-based protection, land-use planning, and retreat should be favored.
