Tool:Infrasctructure Prioritization Framework (IPF)


The Infrastructure Prioritization Framework (IPF) is a multi-criteria decision support tool that considers project outcomes along two dimensions – social-environmental and financial-economic. When large sets of small- to medium-sized projects are proposed, resources for implementation are limited, and basic project appraisal data (but not full social cost-benefit analysis) are available, IPF can be used to inform the selection of projects by combining selection criteria into social-environmental and financial-economic indices. These indices are used to plot projects on a Cartesian plane, and the sector budget is imposed to create a project map for comparison along each dimension. Source:
