I contacted Virin Doshi at Booz, Allen and Hamilton (that Booz and company was called then), and we had a great meeting in London a few month later. He put me in contact with Dan Gabaldon. We drafted a project plan and worked on and off on the report for many months.
Three years later the report is finally done. Dan left Booz and I left WWF, but now the report is out…. Maybe not as exciting as I originally hoped it could be, but a first step towards a service and market opportunity approach for the global urbanization investments. So while the available sum is now official (350 trillion dollars) the assessment is still based on incremental uptake of new solutions.
If there is anyone who is aware of an institution that can to calculations that captures system change please let me know.
