Developing green growth in the “NEW ASIAN TIGER”

Green Cities Flood Management for Sustainable Development

We develop Urban Green Growth Models 

As a sign of its firm commitment to consolidate its presence in the Southeast Asia and to become one of the leading consultants of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in the planning and hydraulic control, INCLAM Group developed in 2015 one of its most strategic projects in this multilateral organization: Secondary Cities Development Program (Green Cities) in Vietnam.

This program has an innovative, flexible, scalable, multisectoral, and multidisciplinary approach, designed specifically for the emerging Southeast Asian Cities. The approach involves a paradigm shift focused on the integration of environmental management in the urban planning processes. The aim is to ensure the sustainability of the urban infrastructure investments and to improve the habitability conditions and the resilience of the cities against natural disasters in climate change context and, at the same time, enhance and highlight their needs and particular assets (historical heritage, landscape value, tourism potential, etc.).

Vietnam is one of the countries of Southeast Asia worst hit by tropical storms and floods.

As for its special geographic location and terrain, Vietnam is endowed with abundant water resources, and it regularly encounters all type of natural disasters. The heavy storm (typhoons) and floods are the most destructive phenomena, and they affect approximately 60 % of the surface of the country and more than 70 % of the population, which traditionally has occupied floodplains where rice is cultivated, and aquaculture and fishing activities are practiced. The high economic growth of the country, a fruit of the transition of a rural economy to an economy based on industry and services, requires minimizing the risks, and social, economic and environmental costs, derived from accelerated urbanization.

The Technical Assitance Contract to ABD, in which Inclam Group participates, focuses on three capital cities of provinces with strategic character in Vietnam. Ha Giang (~72,000 inhabitants) is located 20 kilometers from the border of China, in the headwaters of the Lô River Basin and it is the access way to the Dong Van karst plateau Geopark, an area which has a high ecological and landscape value acknowledged by UNESCO. On a different note, Vinh Yen (76.650 inhabitants) is located within the industrial belt of the Northern Economic Region of Vietnam, on the fertile flood plains of the Red River Delta, and its main asset is Dam lake, which has high tourism potential. Lastly, Hue (~340.000 inhabitants), the old capital of the country, is located downstream of the Perfume River Basin (Huong), near the Tam Giang Lagoon. The main asset of the City is the Imperial Citadel, listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Site in 1993.

INCLAM Group advises ADB and Vietnamese Authorities on flood management in three provincial capitals

Specifically, the experts of INCLAM Group developed a 
diagnosis of the flood problem in each city, emphasizing a holistic view and using decision support tools. Furthermore, recommendation and practical design criteria were given for optimizing the protection and flood resilience. A key factor in this work was the close collaboration within the Consortium, both with the Canadian Specialists as well as with the Vietnamese Partner. This cooperation made it possible to overcome cultural, language and technical barriers.

The sub-projects will have  the financial support of the ADB according to the innovative payment formula based on the results. Furthermore, the completed work will help to strengthen the new sustainable urban planning philosophy promoted by the Program.

INCLAM gains the trust of the stock markets

 » INCLAM gains repricing of 55.73%, and it becomes the best debut of the newcomers in 2015 

Captura de pantalla 2016 01 21 a las 15.32.22 To start the listing in the Alternative Equity Market (MaB), has, undoubtedly, been one of the greatest milestones in the history of the Group. It is never easy to be present in more than 20 countries simultaneously, and the launch on the MaB has been demanding, but at the same time tremendously positive step for the Group. INCLAM closed the year being the best debut of 2015.

One does not start listing in stock exchange market by chance. The strategy of the Inclam Group has always based on investing the possible profits to the development of the company. INCLAM has experienced a remarkable evolution, converting from a company with a turnover of 6.1 million euros in 2008 into a company with a current turnover of 28-30 million euros. In 2008, the Spanish markets constituted 85 % of the turnover of the company,; currently, the Spanish markets represents less than 5 % of our turnover.

What lead Inclam to launch itself to MAB (The Alternative Equity Market)?

The 80 % of Spanish Companies´ funding depend on banks while the European average is 40 %. The stock market is more responsive to the projects, assumes the risk, and enables us to be less depended on the banks.

The aim was to strengthen the financial structure by collecting resources for investing and future projects, which made it possible also to gain access to funding sources.

Launch to market gives visibility and credibility in the eyes of the clients, suppliers, and financial organizations, positioning the Group as a prestigious, transparent and reliable company, prepared to confront new challenges and to offer confidence and profit to the companies and its shareholders. Furthermore, it offers information on the objective value of the company; this facilitates the possible corporate operations.

What has happened since the launch on the MaB?

Since 29th of July, when INCLAM rang the MaB opening bell, it has maintained its focus on the development of its strategic objectives. In the second half of the year, it was awarded contracts in Bolivia amounting to 1.8 US dollars, in Venezuela amounting to 1.31 US dollars and in Honduras amounting to more than three million euros.

The investors have placed their trust in INCLAM, and this was reflected in the markets with a repricing of 55, 73 % in the year closure.


Future Perspectives? 

Our plan is, of course, to continue our growth, and consolidate our presence in the 20 countries where we operate and to develop our presence in other emerging markets. We are on our way to professionalize all the levels of our structure, and our strategy leans decisively on marketing our technology in the advanced countries thus showing that the Spanish companies can compete with anyone.

La pasada semana el Registro Nacional de Huella de Carbono del Ministerio de Agricultura, Alimentación y Medio Ambiente ha resuelto positivamente la inscripción de la Fase III de Refo-resta CO2 como proyecto oficial de absorción de CO2.

Refo-resta CO2 es una iniciativa innovadora que involucra a toda la empresa. Se trata de una estrategia de compensación a través de la reforestación de una superficie de bosque que actúa como sumidero de CO2.

Las dos fases anteriores han supuesto una reforestación de 11,42 hectáreas con cinco especies autóctonas sobre terreno agrícola improductivo en Revilla Cabriada (Lerma, Burgos). La superficie reforestada cuenta con más de 16.000 árboles en crecimiento que, además de absorber las emisiones, generan numerosos beneficios añadidos como la recuperación del ecosistema, el aumento de la masa forestal nacional, la regulación de los recursos hídricos y la creación de empleo tanto directo como indirecto.

En esta tercera fase se han reforestado 4,5 hectáreas con otras cinco especies autóctonas, principalmente pino y encina, en parcelas de uso agrario (pastos), en la localidad de Santa María del Campo (Burgos). Las absorciones previstas que generará este proyecto se estiman en 950,50 t CO2, como parte del compromiso de Inclam en la lucha contra el cambio climático.

Cuadro de texto: Nota de prensa El cálculo, reducción y compensación de la huella de carbono,  permite a Inclam desarrollar un plan de acción que asegure minimizar su impacto lo máximo posible y tomar medidas para mitigarlo.
