Environmental Financing Strategies: FEASIBLE Computer Model
Type(s) of Tool
Country of Origin
Date of Development
FEASIBLE is a tool that facilitates the iterative process of balancing required finance with available finance, including a systematic, consistent and quantitative framework for consideration of environmental targets. The tool uses input describing existing infrastructures and availability of finance from user charges, public budgets and other sources. Based on the specification of the future service targets and projection of future finance, the model quantifies the resulting gap between the demand for expenditure (to invest in, operate and maintain infrastructure) and the supply of available funds. The tool can also be used to analyze the financial effects of different policy and regulation scenarios.
FEASIBLE provides the user with an analysis of the financing gap between the supply of available funds and the demand for expenditure for infrastructures in consideration of environmental targets. These results help policy makers understand where the main bottlenecks are as well as where, when and what additional policy interventions are needed to facilitate effective financing of infrastructure development programs.
