The Development Objective of this proposed activity is to: Support the development of a more resilient trade and transport in the Western Balkans. For this end the activity will assess the economic impacts associated with the potential disruption of core road network assets in terms of infrastructure related loss and the loss of functional connectivity as a function of time among other dimensions. It will overall advance the analytical knowledge to better inform and define possible measures and strategies to improve the Western Balkans Regions Action Plan for Facilitating Trade and Transport against adverse natural events. The sub-activities will therefore be, in summary: 1) Collection of all existing and useful data and information on hazards and transport/regional trade and competitiveness in Western Balkans to determine areas along Corridors which are potentially high risk and need more investigation, b) Modeling of the impact of disasters (current and with climate change and socio-economic changes) on these major transport corridors in the high risk areas identified, c) Cost-benefit analysis of engineering actions to reduce transport actions considering climate and socio-economic changes, and d) Decision-Making under Uncertainty model and Multi-Criteria Analysis to determine priority interventions and financing strategy.
