The IKI global project Enhancing Climate Services for Infrastructure Investments (CSI) supports its partners in Brazil, Costa Rica, the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI), and Vietnam in developing and using Climate Services for climate-risk-informed infrastructure planning and management. Through pilot assessments and advisory services, CSI helps its partners in building capacities in using climate risk assessments as one key Climate Service. CRAs serve as tools for matching Climate Service user needs and provider capabilities to translate data into risk-informed infrastructure planning and management decisions. The tool used is the PIEVC Engineering Vulnerability Assessment Protocol. CSI provides advice to its partners in adapting the tool to become part of a climate-proof infrastructure investment cycle.
