Impact Evaluation
Since this pilot is preceding proposed larger roll-out of the program across Tanzania, it is critical to understand how effective the pilot is in improving trauma care and reducing morbidity and mortality, and if other strategies could be implemented in conjunction with the pilot that would make them more effective. The Development Impact Evaluation unit at the World Bank is proposing to conduct an impact evaluation, funded by UKaid, of this pilot. There is currently little rigorous evidence on the impact of post-crash interventions on morbidity and mortality outcomes. What little evidence exists is only focused in developed country settings where implementation and results may be very different. An important contribution of this study is to bridge this gap and allow policymakers to have evidence on how post-crash interventions work in achieving the goals of greater access to emergency transport, improved on-scene primary care, reduced delays in accessing medical care, and ultimately lower morbidity and mortality in low income countries such as Tanzania. The evaluation can directly contribute to decisions about if and how policy makers scale the program to the country level.

The objective of this assignment (the Services) is to assist the Belize Electricity Limited (BEL) to develop a comprehensive storm emergency preparedness and recovery/restoration plan for BEL, and the necessary institutional procedures and protocols for its effective implementation. This is to ensure that the utility is able to recover from any physically damaging incident with minimal time and losses. The plan has to be implemented in an environmentally and socially sustainable manner and be in full compliance with Belizes and the World Banks environmental and social policies and regulations. The specific objectives are: (i) to assess the limitations and capacities of BEL personnel and physical inventory, whether positive or negative, and propose mitigation measures which will effectively address the response time; (ii) identify different alternatives and their potential impacts and relevant mitigation measures; and (iii) to establish clear directives and methodologies for the effective implementation of the plan. The indicative implementation period for the Services is April 2017 August 2018.
