Assignment Description:  The World Bank aims to apply financing from GFDRR to support efforts to improve the resilience of its coastal areas in India and Bangladesh to enable future investment plans towards building long-term resilience. This technical assistance aims to support the Governments of Bangladesh and India to enhance analytical understanding of past and current interventions, determine lessons learned to assess and improve the quality of resilient investments and improve service delivery of disaster risk management by building and expanding institutional capacities through knowledge exchange and technical and operational collaboration. The expected outcomes of this study are a detailed study assessing past and current coastal resilience interventions (such as multi-purpose cyclone and flood shelters, early warning and dissemination systems, coastal embankments, and community based disaster risk management), cost-benefit analysis of various intervention options, and best practices and lessons learned through data analysis, conceptual/numerical modeling and stakeholder consultations. Also, a comprehensive dissemination strategy will be developed to share the results of the study with the involved agencies, practitioners, and the public in general.
