Water as Leverage for Resilient Cities Asia (WaL)

The ambition of Water as Leverage, as a programme, is to become one that generates multiple bankable climate resilience projects globally following this first Call for Action which serves as a pilot. Key element for this collaborative pre-project preparation call is to include all stakeholders from the beginning; local governments, NGOs and businesses, international and local experts in the teams and partners with funding capacity for the proposals to be developed (i.e. development banks, public and private partners).

Scheduled activities are divided into two (2) stages.

Phase 1: Research and Analysis for the Development of Conceptual Designs

In this phase the teams develop three (3) to five (5) Conceptual Designs for potential solutions to the challenges, based on new and/or existing research and analysis.

Phase 2: Development of Proposals for Urban Water Projects

In this phase up to three Conceptual Designs from Phase 1 are transformed into Proposals for Urban Water Project(s) with a focus on physical infrastructure. These should serve as solutions to the challenges in the cities.

The objective is to develop bankable, innovative and comprehensive Proposals for Urban Water Projects in Khulna (Bangladesh) to address the urgent water and climate adaptation needs. The proposals should have local support, a focus on physical infrastructure and be developed with local partners. The following elements should be taken into account and are described in more detail in the document 'Setting the Scene':

  1. Proposals will be embedded in a complex planning context.
  2. Comprehensive proposals that endorse strategies combining water and urban challenges.
  3. Water as Leverage asks for processes that incorporate local expertise into concrete solutions with global resonance.
