The Water Global Practice (WGP) is commissioning an Advisory Services and Analytics (ASA) to identify innovative Water Storage solutions implemented both externally and internally at the WB, and demonstrate their use in WB operations. The ASA aims to support World Bank teams and client countries in better informing clients decision making on addressing key water resources management challenges through the adoption of innovative approaches and best management practices to reduce disruptions in water systems. The Water Storage is a concept inspired by the need to enhance and expand the potential for water to improve water security in client countries through the adoption of sustainable, resilient, and innovative practices factoring in clients capabilities, challenges and contexts. By definition, this concept is broad, including both engineering and soft solutions that can contribute to water security and that includes retention, inter-seasonal, and interannual systems.

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.
