Country of Origin
The Capacity Assessment Tool for Infrastructure (CAT-I) support countries’ development through better planning, delivery and management of infrastructures. The tool is designed to help governments identify the gaps or bottlenecks that are inhibiting their ability to deliver sustainable and resilient infrastructure. Based on these gaps, the tool can be used to support the identification of potential solutions, develop a pipeline of projects to build national, state, city, or ministerial capacity using technical and advisory services and to show progress against a measured baseline.
Partners receive a final report with recommendations for infrastructure development that are validated in a final workshop, followed by the development of a detailed roadmap for improvements. During implementation, a feedback loop helps to show progress and identify continued areas for improvement.
Identifies strengths and challenges based on analysis of the following stages and processes:
- Strategic Planning
- Spatial Planning
- Project Planning
- Infrastructure sector strategies
- Infrastructure delivery management
- Operation performance regulation
- Operation & maintenance
