This report focuses on the risks of climate change to development in Sub-Saharan Africa, South East Asia and South Asia, the report focuses on the poorest and the most vulnerable groups.
The study recommends measures and technologies to overcome the existing problems and transform the cities of Amritsar and Ludhiana, the report covers improved storage drainage, improved urban environment and addressing services for the poor.
This paper considers three hydropower projects, these are in India, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. The paper looks into the impact of global climate change on these hydropower projects using an autoregressive model on a hydrological series, since hydropower is among the most vulnerable industries to changes in global and regional climate.
This report outlines lessons from two river basins in India, while arguing how planning for hydropower development needs to evolve from a project-based engineering approach to a more holistic one.
The World Bank undertook a comprehensive assessment of South Asia’s container ports to support South Asian governments and stakeholders in the sector. It sought to understand the links between performance and its drivers and costs and to identify whether and how performance might be improved. The study proposes an approach for improvement based on regional and global experience.
This report examines the performance of the 14 largest container ports in the region based on two sets of criteria: operational performance and economic performance. To measure operational performance, the report benchmarks total time at port, waiting time at port, and idle time as a share of total time at berth. To measure economic performance, it benchmarks productivity and efficiency using two useful techniques: Malmquist total factor productivity decomposition and data envelopment analysis. The report identifies key drivers of port performance and examines how differences in performance across ports are related to those drivers.
