The Beijing-based Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) engaged a team of graduate students to develop a framework that helps prioritise urban infrastructure projects across different types of cities. The team designed a framework that is lean and assesses a project’s impact through four impact pillars: economic; social; environmental; and reputational—each consisting of a list of core and non-core criteria which have been identified through research on prioritisation processes of relevant entities. A list of 20 core criteria and 37 non-core criteria across four dimensions have been proposed based on desk research and insights gathered from field visit to Indonesia, Singapore and Vietnam.
