The objective of this consultancy assignment is to provide advisory services and technical inputs on urban flood resilience diagnostics and potential investment options for two Indonesian cities. The diagnostics will propose a multi-year program of prioritized structural and non-structural flood resilience investments. It will include: (i) a desktop review of current and planned flood resilience measures, and urban and disaster risk management policies and plans; (ii) development of flood hazard and risk information, based on future population growth and climate change scenarios; (iii) identification and rapid prioritization of potential interventions with an integrated flood risk engineering and risk-informed urban design approach; (iv) technical knowledge exchanges; and (v) opportunities for participatory planning.
