As part of the World Bank’s West Africa Coastal Areas (WACA) Program, the objective of this activity is to develop, in a participatory manner, a Multi-sectoral Investment Plan (MSIP) for coastal risk reduction and climate change adaptation. The MSIP will be an action plan for the development of the Nigerian coastal zone, integrating climate change adaptation and disaster risk management considerations, and focused on but not limited to coastal erosion, flooding, and pollution. The MSIP will take into account all sectors involved in the zone and their contribution, in the medium and long term, for the strategic development of coastal areas in Nigeria. The activity should delineate objective, prioritized investment needs for integrated coastal zone management, providing indicative/estimated financing requirements for priority interventions, and developing a “pre-design” for the highest priority investment in each state (across four states).

The World Bank will carry out a multi-hazard assessment in Sanaa, Aden and Hodeidah. These cities are exposed to hazards such as coastal and urban floods, seismic activity, tsunamis, volcanoes and water scarcity.
The consultancy will develop hazard maps, assessing individual hazards and their interdependence. The assessment will provide spatial insight into the hazards footprints in the form of fully licensed, GIS compatible datasets. It will gauge the exposure of each of the cities to hazard risks, considering their location, attributes, and when possible vulnerabilities and the value of their assets.

The assignment includes a feasibility study to determine the risk associated with this existing waste management coastal infrastructure and provide a diagnostic designed to define potential interventions for policy reform, alternative options for mitigating forecasted climate and weather related risks and strengthening institutional capacity for managing this risk.

The proposed study aims to develop an improved understanding of the climate change risks in the coastal areas in the select countries in West Africa (Benin, Côte dIvoire, Mauritania, Senegal and Togo), and determine institutional and policy gaps at national and sub-national levels related to integration of climate change risks, and to articulate suitable recommendations to fill these gaps. The consultancy will be within the scope of the West Africa Coastal Areas Program (WACA, http://www.worldbank.org/waca) and will support the preparation of a multi-countries project financing proposals to the Green Climate Fund.

The REPUBLIC OF BENIN, the REPUBLIC OF COTE DIVOIRE, GHANA and TOGO have received financing from the World Bank toward the cost of the Adaptation to Climate Change in West Africa Coastal Areas project, and intend to apply part of the proceeds for consulting services.
