Embed code
the independence yeah we different and and it was way i i definitely not an engineer and make
changes later and filmmaker yeah very diverse group of
people i know my projection translation and um
there is a way happy as we think yeah yeah we have neglected you
repeating our from work so far we haven't uh included much they
and perspective offering architect into our
sure standard you just well he yeah that right now
okay they have you have you consume place yet that we see on on
the okay uh income is your panels to to continue to ignore
shorter on on play otherwise i will get myself into div confuse probably so oh
in this started off this potential partnership we
we thought like are we really talking about the same thing
or are we talking for relieving on different planets so
having the egocentric project taking architectural
perspective nor urban planning perspective
and we're coming more let's say from infrastructure project
perspective um it was sentry taking up
issues like the ecological transition unitarian or agencies and so on and so forth um
in our vocabulary we're talking more about nature based solutions
to infrastructure we talk about land use environmental protection
receiving concepts in particular but also ah long
life cycle assessments um socio economic development
and and everything connected to this and particularly a stakeholder engagement um
but now that i have seen the presentation this morning i'm i'm totally convinced that
we're actually talking about the same thing maybe from a different angle but
actually want to achieve the same things um and i hope that the after
particular to the case studies that we present or simply highlights um
you will have the same feeling on the you're ready to explore potential synergies in
terms of research and we have a suggestion um that we would like then
at the variance discuss with you um the thing that's the time i already
handover to katrina and that would come back with the case studies of
so i'm going to just briefly tell you what your instruction battery is because we also differ
in that way we have foundation we're doing research but we're not in research um body
so um we have been have what seems to resonate and we went in the space of
off i'm pushing and promoting sustainable and receive infrastructure in
many ways on the financial side any engineering side
and also on the political level so we also in in bodies
like of innuendo and bodies in the world bank steering committees
so we we we try to be politically active to does also maybe not the approach um
these are beat that that that the other things we're doing it just to give you the
landscape of what we're doing one the one we're talking about today's issue standard but um
we also have a their financial products because we think um
s. doesn't like finding especially in emerging markets and
developing countries for infrastructure we went to to single out and there is even insisting other projects
for finance to make them wake attractive because uh we would
think we would reduce a risk uh for finances
we'll do a um really implementation work um by michael going to different
projects and i was hoping with feasibility studies business cases and
um i i mentioned the policy work and we have also big events we did five t. i.
b. senate's where we selected about two hundred projects so far with another tool we had before
which are the self assessment tool um where we promoted these apply to any projects to investors
uh yeah i went to a more about how how important you have it is also
to have infrastructure for a a an accomplished it they already mentioned development goals um
and now i would like to introduce you to the main projects uh it that it was the most interesting to you i think
into this and project is that the sure stand it it's a standard for
as as the others in infrastructure and as i mentioned before we had
and now the tool before which we use the three years
before which is called the j. b. grading and and that was a self assessment tool and we thought it wasn't enough
to pass wait and specially investors but also to really certify project of the self assessment
we thought and we did a lot of research and interviews with investors
it is a need twice a third party search yeah they fight standard
a global standard um with a a whole body off
and an issue in system and certification system any impact assessment uh um
uh coming with it the standard has been developed for two yes
um we had a huge um logistical the outreach as sure
that they're they're members of these bodies laid on
and the idea was to do it in a nice little it's a braille organisation you might not know that either it's in
um but no no station for sustainability standards you set certain codes
the code for procedures a code for assurance echoed for impact
assessment so we go very strictly and on those codes when we develop the standard
the idea is also that it's um um
that it's based also on existing standards we're not sector specialists
so we did a lot of research on existing standards and integrated them
into that standard but what was lacking was the financial aspect
so we integrate add to the existing standards and also for
example you might know the essay a hundred trough
um the natives with standard for instruction and and other frameworks like them
ah well paying safeguards live c. performance standards it existing standards that
that we we base this one on and we integrated
um frameworks like this is the impediment goals the
the climate policy the the by diversity and
agreements uh into that thinking and the sender framework for for is good a reduction
and he can see that pretty much three big stakeholder groups
we're catering to one is them popping institutions uh well within can help
with that the increased quality of instruction itself they're great resilience
and i'm sitting up appropriate procurement criteria for his g. and um
had to support them to use their their their limited resources financial resources in a better way
um the benefits of financing sideways and we
have the investment banking now i secretariat
uh they do that together with us to make sure we we also understand the needs of investors
it's a bit steering identify just anybody mention opportunities but days and you want
to invest unsustainable uh and infrastructure and to reduce risk in that way
appropriate developers it's it's also um some helpful and um moments for
for example early identification of potential causes of delay into this
you can see our our up and down as bodies
three strictly organised according to these i seal codes
we have it and start committee which guides as is the colour cancel a
big uh body would you like to start committee and the secretariat
and you can see we have the um u. p. investment bank we have um the loving
my mental facility we have cities like chinese of africa um we have new orleans
and seems the sighted debate i mean i have a lot of n. g. o.
s. and l.'s so un bodies are you and how to tighten your cops
um and a lot of other consultants or defiance and and
down engineers decisions we try to cover the spectrum
these are the criteria to came up with after two years
it looks easy here it took us two years is consensus based so they would have to agree and these criteria
and sometimes it was really hard to uh create a common language 'cause
even enjoy engineer says client it's not a totally different right now
a multilateral development banks as client and they would use the
same work but they have a totally different concept
behind that everything into very interesting yeah and development for two years to create
that language that understanding and then limited down to a set of criteria
uh_huh okay so how this could then eventually look impracticable show you with the very last um
example or case study what you see here is an example that that's
been a mention by even before it's tremendous perk um spend some
months there to support the c. d. of johannesburg and the situation
is pretty much what what uh even told you it's um
let's say to make it short in the in in a a part timer
she him there was no connectivity off it's a townships to business opportunity
you see here to central business district in the survey talk you're one of the remote
because township um thought no connectivity to whatsoever
to business opportunities um and what
the city of a johannesburg pondered er last mayor parks
how decided to do is to create so called
cory tours of freedom which are basically um connections the
first one actually second one actually was from this
township uh so we talk to to central business
district and to create linkages and they um
are doing this by following the concept of transit oriented development um basically
through a boss rapid transit system um stops every few hundred meters though stops are used as
hops um burt they want to implement high density
i'm leaving a mixed and use um
normal tries transports read the cheese so everything basically into walking or cycling distance
no word that was the the two frosting from um so eventually that will then
i'm thirteen the whole crates they plant 'em all in this concept of uh
court or freedoms transit oriented development it a fairly well also
the first bus that actually went from subway talk to to central business district
got shot twice i think because they simply forgot about the taxi industry
they feared that um they would lose all passengers um and they now came up with a
quite sophisticated um compensation mechanisms are basically area via this p. r.
t. t. spots rapid transit system it is um compensating
the taxing history basin every kilometre that drive um the other
issue they had was the price for the tickets
it was for people living in some way tori was prohibitively high so nobody could actually
use it so they are trying to to um change that our rolling here
was a particular one um we were invited to write so
called thank ability study to see how ben couple actually
does your t. system as part of this transit oriented
development um approach would work um if chose not
yeah a technology that was very distinct technology caught you will
fuels on c. n. she's natural gas and diesel um
which is actually not to the market but them basic c. to implement at least to to first
faces so we did this bank ability start it then came to stop i must admit you
to corruption issues in the tendering process of the boss is um yeah but still we were
at least a people to to to bring our um former to the katrina mentioned too
two departments within the city of johannesburg and they're still
using it to ever wait and select their projects
then the second one um we've recently finished last year is a project in
cali to c. t. of uh in colombia um you can already forward
as you can see here the city has grown tremendously and
that of course puts pressure on um the infrastructure
but also on the communities as matter of fact in the city you have one either don't throw racetrack
pretty much dividing the city into rich and poor work those people of course uh not talking to each other on that track
you have a lot of informality going on um a lot
of crime as well um so they've chosen to create
what they called corridor developing a green cory door that actually uses the
zappa don't rail track for a complete city renewable um project
the idea um actually this idea was developed by gail architects you see here
to use this corridor or to unify the c. t. um
they shouldn't be just one track to should be should be
consisting of many many different projects links to each other
and this is where he'll architect work stopped um we
took this approach and developed it into let's say
if faced growth strategy and added concrete ideas on how
to also integrated community in this whole development
um how did we start with that um so well ultimately we came up
with the so called implementation plan which could be seen as a as
a priest h. two almost the plant because that was simply missing at
that time um if you could move on forward here you see
the city of golly and this is basically part of the green corridor it's almost twenty three kilometres long
so this is just one part and the interesting part because you here have a market courts
and uh uh elena and um this is a huge inform the market for you could buy pretty
much everything from um weapons to rocks but also or you're dating this is the necessities um
one yeah so these are just some some things on the green corridor or
so sometimes it's just we're three meters wide sometimes it's almost a hundred meters whites or i'm not one
chord thought it doesn't look the same uh everywhere um so what we did first of all
with the local implementation organisation we went on the streets and to um are
still around the thousand participants um how they feed into c. t.
you can move one forward this is just examples of what are the problems in your city
what are your desires you have towards the city and then
ultimately how could you screen cory door actually serve
to overcome the challenges that you have your daily life built on that we may be run some analyses
on let's say the landscape you could move one
former please um we simply napped infrastructure um
green spots bike routes that are already existing or plant um in
the second phase we looked at natural hazards like flopping
um earthquakes um and in areas that
would be um particularly um uh
prone to to go with a catastrophic is hard at this isn't
actually what we ultimately came up review also looked at
uh at um traffic flows a little bit and so on so we suggested um um to start at the yellow
points let's say and tents that they let the screen corridor growth
so that it ultimately would unite into one one peak
a vision um we incorporated a lot these are just some
from the local implementation organisation how they actually see
see the green cory door at the end um you see also here not public transportation um
but we can integrate a lot of it's a community involvement approaches such as shared economy
approaches um we meaning to be suggested to introduce um
especially currency that could only be used at the screen corridor or
like impossibly have this kind of currency just to promote it
um and then we also made some suggestions although this is not
our field of expert ties are in order to um
get informal sector or closer that say to formal sector
so this is what we've done there we've we've referred written this uh
implementation plan and uh i'm currently they have taken up let's
say eighty percent of those id and trying to to really put them in place the last one and this is now
directly connecting to a sure standard um that
katrina presented besides assure standard we
we designed a it's a short version of the standard recorded smarts can
um which takes up exactly the same dimensions issues and everything um but justin
simplified matter so that they could really use by people um so
our colleague here louis was on the ground to grit unfortunate allowed to tell
you which he did actually is um he's been working in but
it does go back um it's around this the the mean by industry
corridor that is current current to be able to uh and um
there's the plan to build this c. t. let's say with if you ten thousand inhabitants that
basically serves the construction and during that time so this project is that design stage
some construction has started and get want each of our standard or the
smarts can actually is that it can be applied regardless of the
stage of an infrastructure project and it can be used to actually very
phi that want to just made during um to process so
louis sat down with the engineers with designers and evaluate it
the project as it was plant uh and i'm also evaluate to to um potential
areas of improvement so this is what comes out of the smart scan if you run through it
aunts all those questions to the dimensions incorrect here is that i'm catherine has shown to you
basically the the the dark blue area is the performance of
their particular project as as by the smarts again um
the red line is um a benchmark which is based on a few hundred projects
that we have our in our database cross sectoral um to to get
okay yep but basically we have a benchmark in it well um what with all um project
so you could compare also worldwide your performance in terms of use g. issues um then
we also half the light blue areas which all potential of improvements if
certain elements would um be considered so do we
then sit down with the engineers run through the smarts can identify
high performance areas in that particular city like about recycling day
thought of a very thorough they uh but also high um
risk areas and as a set um areas of improvement
i would just run very briefly through this um so there's been no vern is off and greenhouse gas emissions
convention your side so um it's a neck capacity building way you make me wear
off that and and showed way to to to mitigate that issue um
you could move on for this climate thing then on community
impact customer of inclusiveness um there has simply been
uh what the commissioning of the project simply has not been part of the plan so
we encourage planners project developers to think of that at the very beginning um i
think we have experts of circular economy here so they certainly understand um
there has been little engagement only with the industry um so we we showed
ways and means to actually include that into the process as well so
exactly so these are just three insights on very recent projects we've
been working on front two thousand fourteen until now um
i hope that you have seen that were actually pretty much talking about the same things um and hope that we can work
together in the future of course and now i hand over for last word out to katrina thank you very much
so now i thinking so what do we do now so and
as we're coming from that project level and i i do think we korean
lot of there and all of them pretty much all of the
what we call the sustainability and resilience issues i'm connected to infrastructure
which obviously all the connected to cities as a whole and
when we develop that the standard we had a lot of these criteria for cities
also implemented in the standard but in the process we find out we had to
draw the boundary better for the project so for some of these criteria um
for example um anything connectors city into connectivity
all our um then probably procurement these topics you
couldn't actually ask the project to do
they they had limited ways to win friends that to be
more sustainable and so we're coming up with the idea
of maybe doing um topic sectors supplement so that you have a version for it
infrastructure project is accompanied by a public sector set a supplement which could
i'm informed that this c. d. level of how to integrate existing of infrastructure in the
overall planning is one thing you want to look at and everybody important thing
would you have to do and the d. i. c. l. umbrella and is i
seal sustainability standards um framework i i. c. s. i. s. e. a. l.
i i see oh yeah but i says i seal it's um you know the third code is an impact assessment
i think this maybe also unites us a very much as we
we do all have very nice ideas about how we want to
introduce sustainability resilience but do we really know what happens
when the project and has been done do we really know it and how
many people actually have access to what it then or are how many
and jobs have been created to uh as i think that's it and major step and you know
something i think you could think about how do you measure you ideas you have great ideas
and they're great and if aesthetic and and um
generate sharing ideas but how the actually
measure them how do you assess the impact so does it need is
to next steps we're we want to look into anyway tasting the
them the standard still without project so we will have have one
in cost so we which we did with your notes together
and um we have this much skin assessments in in china india for
the moment image to south africa's soon and and we haven't switzerland
so we have a set of projects and we're testing it to the end of the year and then you stand on this is online
