The World Bank Group’s City Resilience Program (CRP) is seeking a firm with specialized experience in incorporating resilience to natural hazards and climate change into the transaction design for fully or partially privately financed construction or renovation of major infrastructure assets and development or redevelopment of land in urban areas.
CRP does not intend to create a new knowledge resource; the focus is on developing an operational product that makes best use of existing toolkits to provide an actual service to WBG task teams.

eC2: Prioritizing Resilient Investments for Water Security in Botswana

Deadline: 25-Apr-2022 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)water_hero

The main objective of this assignment is to develop a national and transboundary water resilient strategy for Botswana. This study will quantitatively assess the climate change risks of water resources management and development alternatives vis-à-vis other identified risks unrelated to such change. The study will include a roadmap for a phased adaptation leading to increased multi-dimensional resilience of the Botswana water resources system using Decision-Making Under Uncertainty Methodologies (DMDU). The assessment will evaluate tradeoffs across in-country water management and services investments as well as the three transboundary options (Chobe-Zambezi transfer, Lesotho-Botswana transfer, and desalination from Namibia). See detailed file with request for expression of interest.

eC2: Study on climate smart agriculture technologies and investment opportunities

Deadline:21-Apr-2022 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) water-tajikistan780x439

The objective of this assignment is to provide a toolkit for women regarding nature based solutions that the Donor Committee for Enterprise Development’s (DCED) Green Growth Working Group. The toolkit should support the development and growing market demand for affordable, gender-responsive, nature-based solutions for climate change mitigation and adaptation and biodiversity in developing countries, and that women as entrepreneurs, business owners, workers and supply-chain actors – are particularly well positioned to help address this need.

eC2: Study on climate smart agriculture technologies and investment opportunities

Deadline: 19-Apr-2022 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) south_africa

The Government of South Africa has identified agriculture as one of the key sectors that could contribute to greening the economy due to its backward and forward linkages with job generation, food security, foreign export earnings and raw material production, making the sector an important engine for the growth of the rest of the economy. At the same time, this potential is significantly threatened by climate change . With more than 70 percent of its croplands relying primarily on rainfall for farming, existing cropping and livestock systems will be directly affected by expected climate induced changes in precipitation and temperature patterns. The agricultural sector is therefore one of the focal sectors of South Africas National Climate Change Adaptation Strategy (NCCAS) that was promulgated in 2020 and of the countrys updated Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris Agreement . The adoption of climate smart agriculture technologies provides opportunities for sustainable intensification consistent with food security and development goals, and climate change adaptation and mitigation needs.
