Overview of position
In late 2019 parts of Somalia experienced some of the worst flooding in the country’s recent historyresulting in several deaths and significant damage to infrastructure, crops, property, and livestock. Further to this flood event, a joint assessment undertaken by the World Bank and the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) assessed the losses and damage caused by the floods and developed a strategy for immediate recovery and longer-term resilience building. As a result, Somalia Crisis Recovery Project (SCRP) financed by the World Bank through the Federal Ministry of Finance (MoF) was formulated. The project aimed at supporting the recovery of livelihoods and infrastructure in flood and drought affected areas and strengthening the capacity for disaster preparedness nationwide. The recovery interventions focus is on three flood affected States (Hirshabelle, South West State and Jubaland), while the longer term interventions focus on a broader national coverage, enabling Government capacity strengthening in Disaster Risk Management. .
The Project Implementation Unit (PIU) established within the MoF is managing the project implementation with our client providing technical support in project activities design, implementation, monitoring and reporting. Our client input includes the development of designs for the rehabilitation of flood-damaged roads, buildings and other infrastructure. As part of our client design development, a Materials Engineer is to be engaged to undertake the field materials investigation activities and pavement designs and report preparation.
