The World Bank is seeking to engage the professional services of a firm specialized in the modeling of hydro-meteorological natural disaster risk in an international environment.
The AP seeks to continue evaluating risk transfer instruments, particularly for hydro-meteorological risk, as highlighted in the APs joint declarations in April 2018 and, to that effect, has mandated the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (World Bank Group) to provide technical assistance for identifying the most relevant hydro-meteorological risks, clearly defining them for the purposes of risk transfer, and evaluating potential financial instruments to provide coverage against such risks. The World Bank Group may act as an advisor to the Client Countries for assessing and developing potential risk transfer instrument, and might be the sponsor of a CAT Bond, should all or some of the Client Countries decide to issue one, via the World Bank.
