The objective of this assignment is to provide technical support to the Government of Cabo Verde in assessing and identifying systemic opportunities to develop and improve the overall Emergency preparedness and response system (EP&R). The final expected deliverables are a user-friendly comprehensive diagnostic report, matched with an EP&R investment Plan. The diagnostic provides an objective, data-driven analysis of the functionality of emergency preparedness and response capacities. It is to be used as a foundation for engagement on emergency preparedness and response. This will be based around the five components of emergency preparedness: (i) legal and institutional framework, (ii) personnel, (iii) facilities, (iv) equipment and (v) information. Under each component, the consultants will focus the inquiry on recent progress and potential areas for improvement within the EP&R system. They will also make actionable recommendations on how to address the identified gaps and on that basis, build an EP&R Investment Plan.
