GREEN WORLD CITY ASSESSMENT PACKAGEâ„˘
How your city will secure:
1. The terminal objective of physical, social, environmental and economic health. 2. The critical enabling objectives of clean water, lowest carbon footprints for buildings, infrastructure, private and public transport and therefore clean air. 3. Overall success in the national interest test.
Please contact Green World City Organisation for an Assessment and a look into solutions for your existing or proposed new city!
“We believe cities should have air that is clean, water that is pristine, power that comes from renewable sources and transport that do not pollute. A city’s human talent should be effectively utilised to provide viable long-term solutions, to build an economy that is sustainable and vibrant. We shall work tirelessly to make these realisations eventuate in the least possible time”

GREEN WORLD CITY APPRECIATION FRAMEWORK: Description
Definition of the fundamental economic, environmental and social goals the national society seeks to achieve, for example: sustained economic growth and increased productivity, lower carbon emissions and lower local pollution, greater social amenity and improved quality of life.
»» Formalised, comprehensive, and agreed goals/targets. »» Quantified, objective and specific goals/targets.
A performance benchmark is needed against which the adequacy of urbanization and supporting infrastructure can be assessed.
Objective, specific, evidence-based, and data rich identification of the consequences in not proceeding with expanded urbanization and that may hinder the achievement of those economic, environmental and social goals. Objective and quantified appraisal of the economic, environmental and social costs of those deficiencies, so that the most damaging deficiencies can be identified and prioritised. Objective policy and economic analysis of why deficiencies prevail – i.e. what is the underlying cause (depending on the sector, reasons could include market failure, government failure, capital restrictions, lack of national capacity etc.). This should include an assessment land use patterns, environmental constraints, uncoordinated infrastructure provisioning etc.
Development of a full range of interventions that might address the issue - e.g. pricing, funding, regulatory, better use, packages/systems, capacity increases, informed by the Problem Analysis completed at Stage 4. Use of cost-benefit analysis (CBA) to assess those options/solutions. The appraisal should incorporate the full range of economic, environmental and social impacts (including agglomeration and trade impacts, carbon impacts, noise, and social amenity) so that the impact on all society’s goals is measured and understood as far as is possible. Identification of policy and project priorities from the list of solutions, on an objective basis. The objective basis should give primacy to the Benefit-Cost Ratio (BCR) of policies, but could include broader considerations set out in a transparent framework - such as national will, priority assessment, deliverability, risk, and affordability.
»» A list of specific problems clearly identified, including geographical locations and associated linkages. »» Those problems accurately quantified and defined, including an assessment of future trends. »» Accurate and objective assessment of the econ/envt/ soc impacts of those problems. »» Priorities identified which reflect the scale of impacts.
Specificity re inadequacies is essential in order to take targeted and therefore more effective action.
Understanding the costs/ impact of deficiencies allows the worst problems to be identified and prioritised.
»» For each deficiency, analysis of why those problems have developed. »» Covers both immediate and underlying causes (e.g. not just ‘lack of investment’, but causes of underinvestment, e.g. regulatory environment).
Understanding the causes allows effective and targeted solutions to be created. Lack of urbanization delivery not the only cause of problems.
»» A full range of option types have been identified for each deficiency/problem. »» Those options have been objectively assessed, without some options having been ruled out early or favoured.
Looking at a range of options rather than relying on early judgements is more likely to identify the best solutions.
»» Accurate and justifiable CostBenefit Analysis applied to appraise options. »» CBA is comprehensive and includes wider economic, environmental and social impacts.
»» Priority List clearly identified. »» Priorities reflect primacy of BCR analysis alongside objective framework »» Relationship to Provinciallyfunded policies / projects clear – i.e. prioritisation reflects all ideas, not just the unfunded.
An understanding of the impact of solutions on all goals is essential to understand how the Deliverer portfolio will achieve those goals.
BCRs provide the best available objective evidence as to how well solutions will impact on goals – but not the whole story.
Green World City commits to a Needs Analysis that calls for an ‘appreciation of the situation’ – not ‘situating the appreciation’.
