  5. 5. Green Bond project examples: The World BankProject summaryPurpose: To improve flooding and drainageinfrastructureProject term: 2010-2016IBRD financing: USD 200 millionAdaptation: Flood preventionHuai River Basin Flood Management and DrainageInvolvementThe Huai River Basin is the third largest river basin inChina with a population of 165 million people in itswatershed. Severe flooding and associated disastersoccur every 3-5 years with extraordinary human andeconomic consequences. Climate change is estimated toincrease average precipitation in the summer season by5% over the next 50 years. The project supports improvedflooding and drainage infrastructure (e.g., better dikes,drainage channels, maintenance) and institutionalstrengthening for disaster assessment and management.These kinds of infrastructure investments are needed toincrease resilience of communities to the impacts ofclimate change, particularly floods. When the project iscompleted, about 9,500 km of rural and urban areas willbe better protected from flooding, affecting about 6,6million people.Project summaryPurpose: To reduce carbon emissions and transformpublic transportation efficiencyApproval: 2010IBRD financing: USD 150 millionUrban Transport Transformation ProgramMexico has one of the most carbon-intensive transportsectors in Latin America, accounting for 18% of Mexicostotal GHG emissions. The rise in traffic, lack of streetspace, and the old technologies of traditional urbantransportation (including inadequate fuel standards)account for some of the many reasons behind theinefficiency of urban transportation that contribute toovercrowding and high GHG emissions in Mexicos manycities.The Urban Transport Project will help transform urbantransportation efficiency in Mexican cities. It will alsoreduce its transport sector carbon footprint by improvingthe quality of service provided by the urban transportsystems in a cost efficient manner, by deployingequipment, infrastructure, and operational strategies thatreduce CO2 emissions. The implementation of thesemeasures can be seen in the modernization of the busrapid transit system and the technology being used tolower its carbon emissions.Project summaryPurpose: To strengthen Indias transmissioninfrastructure resulting in decreased GHG emissionsthrough efficiency gainsProject term: 2008-2014IBRD financing: USD 600 millionProject ID: P101653Power System Development Project IVMitigation: Access to renewable energy (hydropower) inunderserved areas through better interregional powerexchange. Also increased efficiency of transmission.Indias weak power infrastructure constrains Indias fullgrowth potential and leaves many households withoutelectricity services. The inefficiency of the power systemcontributes to environmental problems by forcing 60% ofIndian firms and 40% of households to use dieselgenerators as back-up power sources. In addition, thepoor connectivity between regions restricts Indias abilityto transfer surplus hydropower resulting in growingpressure to build additional coal-based power generation.The project will have a positive development impact byhelping expand the transmission system and capacity andreduce transmission losses. It supports Indias cleanenergy initiative by strengthening Indias ability to transfersurplus hydro energy to power deficit regions in India,increase transmission efficiency, and avoid buildingadditional coal-based generation.Source: The World Bank4
