Summary

This cross-sectoral (urban, water and sanitation, transport, social development) handbook summarizes good practice and the current state-of-the-art in mainstreaming resilience into World Bank investments, including checklists and templates for task teams, case studies from projects highlighting good and bad practice, and operational tools and datasets to support the mainstreaming process. A strong and critically important focus of the handbook will be dealing with risk in planning and resettlement when designing resilient infrastructure and the inclusion of community inputs into the planning process. This handbook is targeted to city-maangers and technical specialists from multilateral, bilateral, and other infrastructure finance agencies working on urban investment projects.
