Objective: The overall purpose of the Transformational Change Learning Partnership (TCLP), undertaken within the Evaluation and Learning (E&L) Initiative of the Climate Investment Funds (CIF), is to increase the transformative impact of CIF investments and those of other funds by establishing a more systematic and robust understanding transformational change in the CIF context.
Climate change poses an enormous challenge to development. By 2050, the world will have to feed 9 billion people, extend housing and services to 2 billion new urban residents, and provide universal access to affordable energy, and do so while bringing down global greenhouse gas emissions to a level that make a sustainable future possible. At the same time, floods, droughts, sea-level rise, threats to water and food security and the frequency of natural disasters will intensify, threatening to push 100 million more people into poverty in the next 15 years alone.
In FY2017, the WBG provided over $12 billion in financing for climate-related projects. Some results from our work include:
- In Vietnam, the World Bank has assisted the city of Can Tho to become more climate resilient and promote sustainable urbanization and transport corridors. An investment of US$ 250 million from the Bank and US$ 10 million from the Swiss Development Agency (SECO) is implemented across six development sectors to increase the city’s physical, financial and social resilience to adverse events. One of the activities involves combining a transport link and an embankment, which has multiple benefits including reducing water displacement and flooding in the Mekong Delta.

The objective of this assignment (the Services) is to assist Belize Electricity Limited (BEL) to develop an effective vegetation study and management plan. This is to ensure that the utility is able to better manage vegetation growth near and under its utilitys lines, and prevent any physically damaging incident with minimal losses, in particular during storms. The plan has to be implemented in an environmentally and socially sustainable manner and be in full compliance with Belizes and the World Banks environmental and social policies and regulations. The specific objectives are: (i) to assess the limitations and capacities of BEL personnel and physical inventory, whether positive or negative, and propose mitigation measures which will effectively address the response time; (ii) identify different alternatives and their potential impacts and relevant mitigation measures; and (iii) to establish clear directives and methodologies for the effective implementation of the plan. The indicative implementation period for the Services is September 2017 August 2019.
