eC2:GEOHAZARD RISK MANAGEMENT AND RESILIENT ROAD ASSET MANAGEMENT IN BANGLADESH

untitledDeadline:  12-May-2018 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)

Objective: The proposed project adopts a systematic approach to assist the Governments of Bangladesh to determine their climate and seismic risks of geo hazard in transport sector. Landslides in Bangladesh have been considered relatively minor compared to flooding. However, with the recent intensified rainfalls during monsoon and unplanned hill cuttings and deforestation in the hill tracts areas, the number of landslides costing people’s lives and properties has been increased in this decade. The project will assess the climate and seismic risks of the roads in Sylhet and Chittagong Hill Tract Districts and identify the highest impact/hot spot areas. Once the priority hotspots are identified, detailed site specific risk assessments will be made and detailed planning process will be conducted with all the relevant specialized agencies. The determination of the hot spots will be done looking at historical evidence on the landscape over time, rainfall data, traffic volume and use by the local communities. Consultations will be conducted with the Local Government Engineering Department (LGED) and other relevant departments including Road Highway Department (RHD). Duration of the assignment is 10 months.
