The objective of this assignment is to provide a new geodetic survey on cross-sections and related engineering infrastructure (bridges, dikes, dam walls, weirs, culverts, polders, etc.) in selected Areas of Potential Significant Flood Risk (APSFR) defined in the 2nd cycle of Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment in Romania, with necessary accuracy for hydraulic modeling (5cm HRMSE and VRMSE).

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.

The objective of this assignment is to inform the socio-economic exposure analysis of the TURP flood risk assessment for Mwanza city. This will be done by providing design and management of mapping campaigns in Mwanza from May October 2020 with a focus on three core mapping campaigns: i) Digitization services for 2020 building exposure updates; ii) Drainage infrastructure and river mapping; iii) Participatory Mapping of Unplanned Communities; iv) Household flood and rockfall historical incidents mapping.
I have read the many reports that summarize the dire state of the climate and our planet’s worsening prospects. I know the hard statistics docum
enting rising temperatures, the increasing intensity of natural disasters and warmer seas. I have been meeting with representatives from developing countries who have one request:

The World Bank is seeking a firm to carry out a geo referenced household survey to contribute to analysis of floods risks and household welfare in the Dominican Republic. The survey instrument will collect data on the living standards, the perceptions of flood risks, and adaption to floods in the country. The consulting firm will work closely with the World Bank team to develop the appropriate sampling frame and methods, and will have responsibility to deliver survey implementation, including, inter alia: identifying and training enumerators and supervisors; pilot testing the survey methodology using the agreed upon data collection technology; and ensuring quality control through effective arrangements for field supervision and data collection and household follow-ups. Deliverables will include clean and formatted survey data, a data codebook in English, and written reports.
Sub-Saharan Africa knows more than its fair share of disasters induced by natural hazards. The past few months alone have seen drought in the Horn of Africa, floods in Mali and Rwanda, and landslides in Ethiopia and Uganda. Between 2005 and 2015, the region experienced an average of 157 disasters per year, claiming the lives of roughly 10,000 people annually.
Disasters can have a debilitating impact on countries’ growth and development prospects. Losses from disasters are only expected to rise as the impacts of climate change intensify across the region. Given these challenges, governments have often been reliant on external aid and budget reallocation to pay for disaster recovery. However, this financing strategy comes at a cost. Uncertainty and delays in aid flows tend to complicate planning for relief and recovery efforts, and budget reallocations can divert funding from vital development programs.

The consultancy is expected to contribute to the upscaling of nature-based approaches for urban flood risk management in Mozambique. Specific objectives are to: (1) identify lessons learnt from a green infrastructure pilot project in Beira, as well as legal, regulatory, and institutional constraints and opportunities for mainstreaming nature-based solutions for urban risk management in Mozambique; and (2) identify various options for nature-based and hybrid solutions to manage urban flood risks in two Mozambican cities and assess their effectiveness, costs, and benefits. The two pilot cities that were selected for consideration are Quelimane in Zambezia Province and Nacala in Nampula Province.
