The key objective of the proposed TA
is to improve resilience to geophysical hazards (earthquakes and landslides)
and climate hazards across the urban transport
infrastructure projects in Northern Lima’s mass transit network, helping to inform
the resilient design of urban transport
interventions and urban development.

This
TA engagement is expected to have a two-fold result. The first immediate goal
will be to increase resilience and identify the main risks of the transport
infrastructure in northern areas of the city of Lima, where most lower-income
and vulnerable communities live. Natural hazards risks in the area of influence
of BRT, metro line 1, complementary corridors and future cable car
infrastructure in northern municipalities will be analysed and results will inform technical needs for
future projects. The activities under this TA will also inform WB investments in
Lima.[1]

The second goal will be to inform cable cars’
future resilient design based on the lessons learned from similar cable car
infrastructure in the area. This TA will provide valuable information on how to
promote resilient cable car infrastructure in vulnerable areas. This lessons
learned report is the only report of its kind and it will be key for future cable
car projects development in the North of Lima, where San Juan de Luriancho and
El Agustino will be implemented. Ultimately, this TA will also contribute to
the WB’s body of knowledge to inform urban transport agencies and project teams
across the WB’s client countries on DRM in an emerging urban transport mode
that is being increasingly deployed.

[1] The activities conducted under this
TA will inform current projects in northern municipalities in order to avoid
duplicity and complement any DRM assessment/similar activities. The projects
are: (i) the Lima Metropolitano BRT North Extension (P170595); (ii) Lima and
Callao Urban Transport Authority Implementation and Integration (P173856);
(iii) Strengthening Urban Cadasters for Urban Governance in Peru (P176222); and
(iii) SEDAPAL Preparing for the Future (P172236).
