eC2: Actuarial modelling of financial losses from Flood Risk in Morocco

Deadline:  30-Mar-2020 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)floods

The World Bank DRFIP framework aims to strengthen the capacity of governments to take informed decisions on disaster risk finance, based on sound financial/actuarial analysis and to support stakeholders with better risk information for financial resilience. To support Morocco’s Solidarity Fund and more broadly other World Bank clients in need for actuarial modelling of financial contingent liability, the DRFIP seeks to develop a flood risk model for the Moroccan territory (which could eventually be reused to other countries or contexts). This model should allow the estimate of the probabilistic loss distribution for various risk categories or protection scheme beneficiaries, for Morocco as a whole (ground up losses), as well as for FSEC specifically.

eC2: Cost/Benefit Analysis of Aquatic Animal Health Management

Deadline: 23-Mar-2020 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) index

This activity aims to lower the risk profile of aquaculture investments, thus attract private equity in a MFD (maximize finance for development) model, and will thus directly address the global knowledge objective of Developing sustainable aquaculture through improved Biosecurity. The activity will provide country-level technical assistance & capacity-building to the development and implementation of best aquatic animal (fish and shellfish) and plant (seaweeds) health management practices in the field. To achieve this reduction of risk, the activity will work directly with Banks operations -in preparation or in their early phase of implementation- to adopt, pilot and refine the Progressive Management Pathway (PMP) to improved health and performance of farmed aquatic species.
