Preparation of Disaster Risk Management Project for the SJL Urban Cable Car Project in Lima, Peru

Client: World Bank

Partners: CPS, Metro Medellín

We addressed issues related to the preparation of Disaster Risk Management (DRM) for the cable car, Non-Motorized Transport (NMT) and pedestrian infrastructure projects in the municipalities of San Juan de Lurigancho and La Independencia.

The main objectives were to report on international cable car good resilience practices in vulnerable areas (implementation and operation stages), develop a guideline for geophysical risk assessment for urban transport (especially the cable car project) and prepare emergency response and safety plan guidelines for public transport infrastructure in northern municipalities.
