Project Summary

This project aims at promoting quality infrastructure investment to enhance disaster resilience in the APEC region, in particular, in rural and non-metropolitan areas. The project focuses particularly on “Rehabilitation and Build Back Better (BBB)“, as well as on prevention and mitigation, preparedness, response, defined in the APEC DRR Framework endorsed in 2016, in order to help to implement the Action Plan based on the Framework.

The project includes the following components:

· identifying the best practices and challenges by surveying infrastructure investment at the stage of BBB in rural area and middle sized cities.

·  organising workshop in Hanoi in Vietnam facing risks of natural disasters, by involving private sector. Emphasis is placed on SME and MSME in the target affected economies and

.  compiling a case book for promoting effective and resilient infrastructure investment at the stage of BBB.

Relevance

APEC Region, located in the Pacific Ring of Fire is particularly vulnerable and exposed to disasters, facing typhoons, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and so on and that the impacts are magnified by the dense population, and expressed concern about the risks of disruption of the increasingly integrated and interlinked production and supply chains by natural disasters. Disaster risk reduction, rehabilitation and build back better directly relates to economic development of the affected economies and requires long term infrastructure development planning in close collaboration with private sector, in particular, for rural and regions outside metropolitan areas in face of urbanisation and development, so that rural communities should get well integrated in the economic and social development of the region. Sustainable infrastructure development is a precondition towards achieving resilient global value chain resilience.

This project has been proposed as a direct tool to implement the Action Plan based on the APEC DRR framework endorsed in 2016. Recovery and reconstruction from natural disaster is a key opportunity of infrastructure investment in particular for developing economies facing increasing needs for quality infrastructure investment. Outcome of this projects will facilitate many economies in need of new infrastructure at the stage of planning and coordination with diverse sectors.

This project falls under Rank 1 on 2016 APEC Funding Criteria, since this project related to: (i) building sustainable and resilient communities and (ii) emergency preparedness and disaster management, including activities relating to the efficient movement of capital, goods, services and people as well as the implementation of the APEC Disaster Risk Reduction Framework.  This project also falls under Rank 2 related to strengthening growth security through disaster risk reduction to enhance resilience against natural calamities.

How the problem/opportunity affects APEC economies and/or certain sectors

Delay in recovery from disasters and insufficient conditions of infrastructure may discourage investment, leading to further delay in economic recovery and a vicious cycle.

How this project will improve conditions for these economies/sectors

Outcome of this project will facilitate economies facing difficulties in recovery and infrastructure improvement by providing good practices. Economies that are not presently facing similar challenges could start thinking and discussing already recovery for infrastructure BBB in case they may be affected

The current status of the issue in APEC, How the project will benefit most APEC economies

In many of emerging APEC economies, see an increasing demand of infrastructure investment in rapid urbanisation and economic development, however, infrastructure development may be promoted in a haphazard manner and investment decisions have not always been made based on plans with wider scope or considering sustainability, disaster resistance, and other priorities of international community. This project is expected to benefit emerging regions in the world as well as many APEC economies in the midst of economic development by facilitating their wider scope infrastructure planning by focusing particularly on disaster recovery.

Objectives

The project by highlighting emerging needs and challenges of rural infrastructure development to connect rural areas and cities beyond borders is intended to:

· organise a workshop in Vietnam facilitating public-private exchanges including MSMEs to discuss and plan quality infrastructure development in the process of BBB from long term perspective. Non-structural measures including planning and smart use of infrastructure will also be raised then, and

· compile a case book on best practices of BBB and lessons learnt by highlighting  the cases of infrastructure development in rural areas supporting GVC. This compiled case book will be shared among the economies.

Alignment

Alignment - APEC: APEC Leaders adopted in 2015 the APEC Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) Framework to facilitate collective work in building adaptive and disaster-resilient economies supporting inclusive and sustainable development in face of the “new normal”, noting the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. The project directly supports APEC DRR framework and the Action Plan, in particular, regarding “Rehabilitation and BBB”, one of the four pillars, which directly relates to economic development of the affected economies and requires long tern infrastructure development planning in close collaboration with private sector.

APEC has long been committed itself to supporting growth in our region through sustainable and resilient infrastructure development. Manila Declaration stressed the importance of investment in quality infrastructure and connectivity to realize a vision for an Asia-Pacific community and highlighted better connectivity between urban and rural areas in facilitating investment and infrastructure development, referring to the region’s shift in demography, aging and urbanisation, and implications for the region’s food system.

Rural communities should get well integrated in the economic and social development of the region and for this purpose, sustainable infrastructure development is a precondition towards achieving resilient global value chain resilience. Once a disaster hits rural area, the impacts and delay in recovery could spread over the whole economies through goods and service supply chain. Floods and landslides triggered by heavy rain that hit northern Vietnam, for example, in August 2015 brought about tremendous damages to local economies, while the earthquake and subsequent sediment disasters in Kumamoto, Japan in April 2016 demonstrated that disasters in local cities could significantly affect domestic and global supply chains as well. Many other economies have seen, or could see in the future, similar damages, due to the geographical nature of the Pacific Ring of Fire.  APEC DRR framework thus stresses repeatedly importance of critical infrastructure resiliency, and the stage of rehabilitation and BBB is a critical opportunity to integrate DRR into development planning and of upgrading resilience of infrastructure. 

Alignment – Forum: The project is aligned with EPWG workplan for the year 2016, from the following points of view:

·  further collaboration  with other APEC fora to jointly work on logistics/supply chain recovery following a large-scale disaster, the economic benefits of risk reduction for SMEs, climate change and disasters, and the structural and non-structural measures associated with disaster risk reduction

·  exploration of opportunities to undertake projects and activities fostering  collaboration with the private sector; encouraging participation of the business sector in emergency management, including mitigation and preparedness efforts; and build the resilience of the business sector to disasters.

·  enhancing cooperation on global value chain and supply chain by information sharing and capacity building to assist developing economies and SMEs, and supply chain connectivity.

Based on these, the core idea of this project will be raised as discussed among the co-sponsoring economies so far, in the process of the discussion for the workplan 2017 that covers the project period.

The project closely relates to the four priorities defined in the present Strategic Plan, which are; Enhancing regional capacity on disaster risk reduction and emergency preparedness/ Promoting public-private partnerships to develop joint disaster preparedness actions and build up disaster resilience / Supporting  recovery processes in disaster affected economies through long-term development approach / Facilitating sharing of information, knowledge, expertise, best practices and experience learned from disasters.

Beneficiaries and Outputs

Outputs: As the final output of this project, a casebook will be compiled, which covers survey findings of good practices and lessons learnt on BBB of infrastructure in non-metropolitan areas in the in the surveyed economies.

In order to complete this casebook, a workshop will be held which will help to bring together many comparative cases wider economies, to share the experiences and to produce a casebook that will facilitate disseminating the survey results through international comparison.

After the project period, feedbacks to the casebook is also expected from APEC economies and relevant stakeholders, which may start elaborating long term infrastructure development plan. 

Outcomes: The hypothesis behind this project is that in the regions where wide range of stakeholders closely discuss and share regional development vision, idea and challenges, could react immediately, once affected by disasters, when additional financing may be made available by the national government or aide organisations, towards reconstruction for the target region and BBB.

Soon after disasters, affected regions may largely be forced to make recovery plan immediately in difficult situations and to take important decision of huge investment of infrastructure development without sufficiently well discussing with wide stakeholders, although  it will not always simple to build consensus in a limited time period on important investments. It may be difficult that effect over supply chain beyond the region will be well examined from wider scope of view in that situation.

In medium to longer-term period, the outputs described in 5 is expected to accelerate fundamental changes in policy and investment decision making through facilitating APEC economies in: 

1) Planning from long term view point infrastructure development and regions’ development by involving wide range of stakeholders including private sector inside/outside target region even before disaster happens;

2) Carefully examining resilience against natural disasters in regional development planning process;

3) Raising awareness of DRR among private sector and those connected through supply chain;

4) Bridging wide range of industries in regions and outside regions linked through global value chain  and regional authorities in charge of infrastructure development, spatial development and DDR;

5) Promoting investment in resilient infrastructure;

6) Accelerating “Build Back Better” recovery and reconstruction process; and

7) Mitigating the impacts of disasters and achieving resilient rural development in and outside affected areas.

Beneficiaries: The project intends to facilitate both governments and private sectors in disaster prone economies so that they could get prepared in advance of disaster, optimal solutions on infrastructure recovery planning and BBB investment in case they might be hit.

The major targets include those planning to invest in non-metropolitan and rural areas in emerging economies

·  national and subnational government authorities in charge of DRR as well as infrastructure development and planning

·  private sector, including MSMEs in particular, those led by women, located in non-metro areas, outside capital region

Both can be selected, from:

1) very recently affected rural areas;

2) those affected in the past and presently on the process of BBB; and

3) emerging economies in need of infrastructure planning and potentially affected by natural disasters. 

1) and 2) may be direct beneficiaries and 3) are long term or indirect beneficiaries.

EPWG members, SMEWG members, and other relevant APEC fora members are also expected to benefit from the outputs.

Dissemination

For dissemination, a highlight summarising major outcome as well as, together with a full version of case book will be produced. Both will be made accessible from APEC Publications Database as the primary platform for distributing the electronic version of the case book.

In addition, printed copies of the highlight will be produced for wide dissemination by taking advantages of diverse conferences including EPWG, SDMOF, relevant APEC fora, international and national conferences on DRR by UNISDR, other international organisations working for DRR and development, and ABAC and other private organisations. 

In order to facilitate dialogue at diverse opportunities including those referred to in “ Sustainability “, paper copies are useful and indispensable. Printed version will help to obtain wider audience at the occasion of diverse exhibitions on DRR, since many of important infrastructure investment decision will be made by the private sector. National organisation of private sectors actively working for DRR in each economy may also be informed such as Japan Business Federation, Kansai Economic Federation and Japan Bosai Platform, for the case of Japan. The outcomes of the project will also be shared with ADRC 30 members and advisors at Asian Conference on Disaster Reduction. 

Full version of the case book will be made available by electric version through relevant websites.Printed version will  be distributed to economies as follows:

ADRC will contribute to make Japanese translation if need be, while PO will discuss translation into the local languages with other economies where case studies will take place in the process of the project.

Gender

Women’s full participation in DRR as well as economic activity is critical to achieve truly resilient APEC regions. The focus of this project is not placed on gender issue, however, gender is one of the key elements that should be well considered in planning BBB towards resilient region as well where many of local SMEs and MSMEs dependant on the supply chain networks may be led by women as well as men.

In this project, in individual case studies, following points will well be taken into consideration:

1) In analysing industries and supply chain in individual case regions, status of women’s participation, and major roles and challenges will be examined.

2)Participation of both men and women in the stage of planning infrastructure in the affected regions is one of the keys in the study. In the recovery stage, past experiences show that decision regarding infrastructure investments can be taken in relatively short period, without sufficient participation by involving wide stakeholders, due to the necessity of rapid recovery.

3)In organising the workshop, women’s participation from local industries and relevant sectors will be encouraged as well as selection of female speakers and organisers.

4)PO and her team, and PD in charge of this project are both women.

Work Plan

This project will be undertaken throughout the year 2016 when two EPWG meeting and a SDMOF meeting will be scheduled. Progress report of the project will be shared with EPWG members step by step and final report will be expected to be completed in 2017 December. The outcome will be reported in February 2018.

Risks

In implementing this project, following risks could impact may need to be managed:

1) This project could be overlap a certain degree with a CTI project proposed by Japan on urban infrastructure development title: “ Capacity Building for Quality Infrastructure Investment in Rapidly Urbanizing APEC Region”. The CTI project will deal with infrastructure development regardless of natural disaster recovery, while this project will focus on BBB. Further, the former focuses urban area, while this project will explore specific demands of non-metropolitan and rural areas. Both POs have started already sharing information of the projects so as to achieve synergy effects through collaboration at the stage of project planning.

2)  Evaluation of individual cases is not simple. Recovery and reconstruction stages will last long over decades in particular, when it comes to wider regional effects instead of those of individual projects. Evaluation and comparison will not be simple when stage of BBB vary among the cases. The outcome will thus be qualitative comparison and throughout the project implementation, conceptual framework for BBB evaluation needs also to be discussed.

3)  This project is proposed to deliver useful outcome throughout the year APEC 2017 in Vietnam and the workshop and other activities need to be scheduled in accordance with EPWG workplan 2017.

The time frame of this project could be affected by host economy’s overall scheduling of relevant meetings.

PO should thus adapt and adjust project implementation schedule to it by closely contacting with Viet Nam.

Monitoring and Evaluation

At the project implementation stage, progress of the studies on individual economies will be checked and shared regularly among the experts and contractors involved, the number of comparable cases collected and studied, types of disasters, number of materials surveyed, number of people interviewed, which can be used as indicators to measure if the project in on track.

Number of participants in the workshop will also be reported for monitoring: The workshop is expected to be attended by aound 50 participants including 12 from economies, 15  from Vietnam and 20 from the conference venue region, It is expected that more than 25 % of which will be women and that more than 10 economies will attend the workshop.    

The project outcome will be reported to EPWG in February 2018 and the entire report will be made accessible from the Website. At the EPWG, delegates attending the meeting will be interviewed for evaluation, while during the period of SOM1 2018 in PNG, evaluation by economies will be collected.

For both, the major questions will focus on the usefulness and relevance of the cases analysed in the workshops and in the case book. In the process of monitoring and evaluation, Focus is also placed on vulnerable people, elderly and women in rural communities.

-  Whether economies could draws effective lessons learnt from the cases collected and analysed in the casebook to upgrade their efforts of BBB and infrastructure planning in rural areas.

-  Expected impacts on their infrastructure investment planning and decision.

-  Whether the information is useful for creating infrastructure friendly to vulnerable people, elderly, women, and MSMEs led by those groups in rural communities are found in the outcome.

-  Next steps EPWG will needs to take based on the outcome of the project.

The access to the full version of case book presented on the web will be counted and monitored as a quantitative performance indicator throughout the following year of the project together with the above mentioned qualitative reactions by economies and relevant parties. Both will be reported back to EPWG, and the EPWG workplan 2018 and succeeding years are expected to be discussed by reflecting and integrating the outcome of this project supporting the Action Plan of the DRR framework.

Linkages

1) APEC has comparative advantage in exploring this subject, which requires wide range of inputs, as it delivered so far various sources of knowledge on infrastructure, supply chain and DRR.

As 2015 APEC Ministerial Meeting Joint Ministerial Statement refers to quality infrastructure development as a key priority for APEC region, emerging economies, in particular, see a growing need of infrastructure investment.

CTI published, prior to this, an "APEC Guidebook on Quality of Infrastructure Development and Investment", which starts with referring to the risks that shortage of budget available for infrastructure may lead to higher than expected cost, due to insufficient consideration of safety including natural disaster resilience as well as other factors. The Guidebook aims at enhancing the governments’ ability to plan infrastructure projects based on comprehensive considerations including resilience, in which focus is however placed mainly on procurement procedure and financing to maintain quality of infrastructure.

2) This project spotlighting rural infrastructure development at the stage of recovery from natural disasters is based on the previous works undertaken by EPWG and other fora, in particular, those on global value chain and those on supply chain among other by EPWG, CTI and TPTWG. Those works place however little focus on infrastructure planning supporting supply chain, nor, infrastructure investment in relatively rural areas outside metropolitan areas. As infrastructure investments have been accelerated in many of emerging economies, not only metropolitan areas but in other cities and rural areas need to get prepared to plan infrastructure development from wide scope of view to create more effective networks and environments to support global value chain extending beyond economies.

Effective infrastructure investment after disaster towards BBB that this project is thus proposed to deliver new value added for APEC economies. By contacting and inviting, above mentioned fora including CTI, TPTWG and wide range of other fora to EPWG meetings in February or August (tbc) in 2017 and the workshop scheduled in September (tbc) in Vietnam, throughout the process of the project, both inputs, those from EPWG and those from other various fora will be integrated, which will help to create useful outcome for economies in need of infrastructure planning and investment.

3) Regarding other organisations working for DRR outside APEC, OECD, for example, produced so far a series of “Investment Policy Reviews”, based on which published a report titled "Fostering Investment in Infrastructure: Lessons learned from OECD Investment Policy Reviews" January 2015. It identifies policy options to enhance the enabling environment for infrastructure investment, for the consideration, although the scope is not limited to DRR.

More specifically, International Recovery Platform (IRP), for example, published, amongst all, a “Guidance Note on Recovery: Infrastructure” by studying many cases of recovery and reconstruction in the world. IRP as a platform of international organisations is supported by World Bank, UNDP and many other international organisations including ADRC, PO’s organisation that works together with IRP in Kobe. Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institute, DRI, also located in Kobe, works closely with ADRC. Vast experiences of reconstruction of Kobe and studies undertaken by DRI is directly accessible.

APEC could facilitate bringing together all those previous multi sectoral experiences of infrastructure, Natural disaster risk reduction and BBB, and supply chain analysis and public private partnership and EPWG could work as a hub to deliver useful inputs well adapted to the needs of member economies.

Sustainability

Throughout this project, a series of best practices in the studied economies and the comparative cases as outcomes of the project will be shared and disseminated widely among economies by taking opportunities of diverse international conferences and projects including Asian Conference for Disaster Reduction by ADRC, and if possible at AMCDRR in 2018 and so on.

 Economies affected by natural disasters in the process of the project , and those on the process of reconstruction will be approached by PO and co-sponsoring economies to organize opportunities for briefing. Project outcome will be used in the diverse training courses organized by ADRC and co-sponsoring economies. Similar cases and comparable cases need to be selected and informed to the affected economies and regions through ordinary EPWG sessions that discuss recent natural disasters and relevant policies in individual economies.

Further, with the outcome of this first stage of the project, the second stage project will be proposed by PO and the co-sponsoring economies the scope of which will be widened to address diverse types of natural disasters and damages, areas, types of infrastructure and planning system and so on.

The project will directly benefit local governments and business through wide dissemination, training and workshops. Networking of the affected local governments, for example, needs also to be explored and initiated in the workshop, which will help to measure qualitatively the progress of the outcomes and impacts.

Project Overseers

This project will be undertaken by experts specialising in the individual six target economies by contracts. Experienced experts will be selected by coordinating the following contact person (tbc) in each economy.

Regarding the workshop organisation in Vietnam, a contractor based in Vietnam may be selected in close collaboration with Viet Nam.

Waivers

As per GB 9-11 all direct labour should be contracted out as one single package for administrative and management efficiencies, however, in order to achieve maximum costs and administrative efficiencies, it is inevitable to contract out the tasks separately for the following reasons:

-  There is a significant variation both among DRR policies and status of infrastructure development among economies, and very few experts/contractors may thus be ready to deliver outcome of sufficient quality in six economies in the limited period.

- It will cost less expensive to work with locally based contractors in individual target economies for research, by PO’s team’s coordinating with and bridging together the six teams, directly.
