    The Ethiopian Railway Corporation (ERC) seeks assistance to enhance its understanding of likely impacts of climate change on its envisioned infrastructure, which will enable ERC to integrate these impacts in crucial long-­‐term investment decisions.

    Activities: (2015 - 2016)
    The Ethiopian Railway Corporation program seeks to:

    • Determine the future climate change pattern;
    • Identify detailed topographic and hydro-­‐meteorological information along railway networks;
    • Map the climate change vulnerability of the rail networks;
    • Evaluate a range of impacts of climate change on railway infrastructures over a range of climate scenarios;
    • Develop and test a framework for investment decision-­‐ making that can be ‘robust’ under a wide range of climate outcomes; and
    • Formulate actionable recommendations for decision makers on how to enhance the climate resilience of infrastructure development

    Impact and MRV

    No Data Available.png
    Cumulative GHG reductions: No data available
    Mitigative capacity:

    No information has been provided on mitigative capacity


    Social: Number of people trained and an increase in employment, social equity and tax revenues
    Economic: Decrease transport costs and improve the trade balance through reduced import of fossil fuels and reduce road maintenance.

    Number and type of investment decisions that have been affected by the vulnerability assessment. Additional macro-­economic benefits are the enhanced integration of Ethiopia with its East African neighbours as well as enhanced access to sea ports.

    Environmental: Shift transport from road to rail. This would lower congestion, air pollution (NOx), noise and vibration pollution, traffic accidents.

    MRV Framework:
    No MRV plan has been defined
