This consultancy has two main objectives: (i) elaborate green infrastructure solutions to mitigate the impact of flooding in precarious urban neighborhoods; and (ii) develop disaster evacuation planning and design strategies based on access to on-site refuges and evacuation routes to protected sites to improve the resilience of populations. The overall objective of the technical assistance is to strengthen urban resilience in Antananarivo through targeted analytical interventions in urban planning and disaster risk management that will be leveraged through the ongoing investment operation. The main beneficiaries from the planned activities are the 650,000 poorest and most flood-prone inhabitants of Antananarivo living in high risk areas, that are targeted in the PRODUIR project. Institutional beneficiaries include the Ministry of Land Planning and Public Works (MAHTP), National DRM Agencies (BNGRC and CPGU), and Municipal Authorities (CUA).
