Two strong partners teamed up for resilience
Embedding infrastructure solutions into sociopolitical contexts

Surat (India)
Situation: Most of city's catchment in high variability rainfall zone
Complication: Experienced 23 floods in the last 100 years
Solution:
• Buildings erected on raised platforms or built without ground floors;
also electricity lines erected
• City covering early warning system
• City center and industrial corridor protected by dams and
closable gates
Kobe (Japan)
Situation: Located at east coast of Japan, where three tectonic plates
meet in a seismic active region
Complication: Strong earthquake hit unprepared city in 1995,
damaged 450,000 houses and killed 6,400 people
Solution:
• Existing emergency response and relief operation was supplemented
by "individual recovery"
• Reconstruction of earthquake-proof infrastructure and integration
of a disaster management cycle including an early warning system
Various approaches of cities
to face challenge (1/2)

Approach
How do Siemens and GIZ support
you in making your city resilient?

Investing in resilience has many benefits
Economic growth and job creation
Assurance for investors therefore increased tax base,
business opportunities, economic growth and employment
… some examples …
A legacy of leadership
Strengthened trust in and legitimacy of local authority
Social and human gains
Protected community assets and cultural heritage
More liveable communities
Balanced ecosystems that foster services such as fresh water
and recreation and that reduce pollution
Being prepared. 8
Example energy solutions and Co-benefits
Redundancy
Power system design
(grid/generation/operation) for reliable, robust
and redundant power supply under normal
and emergency conditions including
procurement of spare parts.
Robustness
Deployment of gas-insulated switchgear,
undergrounding of lines, flood protection
measures and elevating of substations, hy-
drophobic coatings, islanding of supply areas
Diversity and flexibility
Develop standards and norms for
distributed generation, wide deployment
of distributed renewable energy capa-
cities, smart metering infrastructure etc.
Coordination
and learning
Set up an independent monitoring and
evaluation unit to follow up closely on
the progress of the implementation of
the measures to boost resilience
according to the resilience action plans
Responsiveness
Draw up a response-plan: Thresholds and counter-actions,
clear responsibilities within the city administration, data generation
by the automated monitoring system and data distribution
Energy
• Generation and consumption geographically
coincide, transmission losses are reduced
• Reduction in air pollution and greenhouse
gas emissions
• Use monitoring results for strategic planning and
policy-making, even beyond resilience
• Coordination increases the general degree
of efficiency and can help to reduce costs as
information is shared and double work eliminated

No Action Partial Investment Full Implementation
Action Plan for the NYC Power grid
With cost-benefit
“Do Nothing”
• Anticipated damage to
the power grid over 20
years: USD 1-3 bn

“Protection only”
• Investment pays back
through reduced damage
• But city still has net
losses

“Full Grid Resilience”
• Protection PLUS system
resilience, reliability and
efficiency
• Net benefits

The implementation roadmap and involvement
of stakeholder groups go hand in hand
Joint definition…
…of implementation
framework e.g.
• Available budget,
• Number of measures
• Timescale
Prioritization…
…of measures based on
discussion with city
• Relevant parameters can be
CAPEX, OPEX, critical infra-
structure, saving potential, etc.
Guidance…
…on the possible implemen-
tation path of the different
measures to increase
resilience
Involvement…
…of stakeholders
• Identify multipliers
(such as civil society, private
sector, association, media) and
involve different interests
Raise awareness…
…in the community on
questions of climate change
and resilience
• Actively engage the community
to develop plans for resilience
Communicate…
…results
• Address the citizen's concerns
with respect to costly infra-
structure investments and
make costs and benefits of
planned measures transparent
