Project Value 72 Million
Project Detail

Description of the Project The World Bank Idai Recovery Project is a four-year response to the devastation left by the cyclone, specifically to support livelihood recovery in worst affected areas. UNOPS has been designated as direct fund recipient and implementer, with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), World Health Organization (WHO), and World Food Programme (WFP) as sub-component technical lead agencies (herein referred to as Technical Leads). The Project Development Objective is to address the early and medium-term resilient disaster recovery needs of cyclone-affected peoples. The project will take a multi-sectoral approach, which utilizes an integrated and holistic strategy by combining interventions across sectors, requiring active coordination and planning across organizations and components. Drawing on the consultative group, the ZIRP will sequence and integrate activities across UN and external partners, assuring coordinated and complementary investments, including the use of a central targeting mechanism. The ZIRP components details and anticipated activities are as follows: The Project Development Objective (PDO) is to “address the early and medium-term resilient disaster recovery needs of cyclone-affected people.” This objective will be achieved through: (a) a surge of high-impact, immediate interventions for enhancing the coping capacity of the affected communities while humanitarian operations continue in tandem through other partners; (b) activities that transition toward medium-term recovery such as restoration of productive capacities of the communities and rehabilitation of critical community infrastructure across multiple sectors; and (c) interventions to reduce community hazard risk vulnerability through community level structural and non-structural mitigation. Project Components are as follows: Component 1: Providing Immediate Support for Cyclone Recovery: This component will provide immediate and integrated livelihoods and healthcare solutions to cyclone-affected people, including sub components such as: (a) Restoring livelihoods through conditional cash transfers to provide food assistance and through unconditional cash transfers for most vulnerable groups; (b) Restoring agricultural crop and livestock production, including distribution of agricultural inputs for small farmer households, and the re-stocking and treatment of livestock and poultry, and; (c) Accelerating the revitalization of basic health services, including the provision of a basic package of health services and referral pathways related to Gender-Based Violence (GBV)/Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (SEA), and child protection measures. All activities under this component will specifically target women and female-headed households. This component will also finance project management and overheads costs for the above activities, such as needs and beneficiary assessments, quality assurances of livelihood supports, etc. Component 2: Enabling Medium-term Cyclone Recovery and Resilience-building: This component will support the rehabilitation of critical community infrastructure, such as water and sanitation systems, irrigation networks, community schools, and community roads, as well as community level structural risk reduction and mitigation efforts, such as slope protection and environmental rehabilitation. This component will also finance project management and overhead costs for the above activities, such as needs and beneficiary assessments, preparation of technical designs, technical quality control assurance, etc. Component 3: Providing Project Management and Technical Assistance: This component will provide UNOPS Project Management support, for overall coordination and oversight functions and for centralized project services, across all components, such as monitoring and evaluation (M&E), managing and monitoring environmental and social performance, technical quality assurance, grievance redressal, GBV/SEA and referral and protection systems, and for engaging Independent Verification Agents (IVA) for beneficiary verification, technical quality assurances, project results validation; and Technical Assistance (TA) for a range of activities to be progressively determined on a needs basis, to facilitate strengthened implementation. These could include, but are not necessarily restricted to: (a) social assessment; (b) supporting community risk assessments, monitoring and preparedness planning; (c) supporting community infrastructure damage assessments; (d) setting up the ZIRP Management information system (MIS); (e) developing health information and epidemic surveillance systems; (f) strengthening project strategic communications, media relations and citizen engagement; (g) building the capacity of the Project’s environmental and social staff. Component 4: Unallocated Fund: To allow flexibility and adaptability during implementation, the Project envisions an unallocated US$3 million to be distributed midterm based on a set of agreed criteria such as performance of the various components, varying levels of support from other development partners, and associated financing gaps in the various components. Such allocation shall be decided by World Bank Management, based on recommendations from Task Team Leaders and in consultation with the Consultative Group being set up under the Project.

Project Detail

Project Development Objective (PDO) 18. The project development objective is to improve the rural population’s physical access to markets and social services in selected areas. 19. Project impact area. The proposed project impact area covers the north of the country in the regions of Cacheu and Oio (see maps 1 to 6 in Annex 3). It has been selected for the following reasons: • Complementarity with interventions of other development partners in the road sector. The European Union (EU) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) focus on the improvement of rural roads in the south of the country (regions of Tombali and Quinara). The West African Development Bank (WADB) finances improvement of urban roads in Bissau and plans to improve roads in the west of the country. The Government of China may start financing road improvements in the east (region of Gabú). This means that the proposed project focuses on an area not currently covered by any other development partner. • Cross-sectoral synergies with other World Bank funded projects in the project impact area. The project aims to complement other World Bank projects in the area such as the Rural CommunityDriven Development Project (P090712), which has recently financed the construction of several wells and schools in this area. Another project in the area is the Private Sector Rehabilitation and Agribusiness Development Project (P127209), which has provided support to a cashew processing factory, as well as warehouse facilities and farmers capacity building efforts in the project impact area. In addition, three other projects intervene in the regions of Cacheu and Oio in the sectors of health, education, and social protection: Strengthening Maternal and Child Health Service Delivery Project (P163954), Quality Education for All Project (P160678), and Safety Nets and Basic Services Project (P163901). The proposed project is also expected to use the same participatory approach to select feeder roads for funding as was developed under the Rural Community-Driven Development Project to determine the infrastructure priority needs of the local population. • Integration with regional transport corridor. The proposed project area is located along the border with Senegal and the trunk road to be rehabilitated by the project connects with the paved road going from Bissau to Ziguinchor (Senegal), which is currently the main transport corridor linking Guinea-Bissau and Senegal. • High population density. The proposed project impact area has a population density above average since Cacheu and Oio are respectively the third and second most densely populated regions of the country. The populations of Cacheu and Oio were 193,000 and 225,000 respectively in 2009. • High poverty rates. The regions of Cacheu and Oio, with poverty rates of 80.5 and 73.2 percent respectively, are among the poorest in the country. 10 • Chronic food insecurity. The regions of Cacheu and Oio are also among the regions suffering most from food insecurity. 11 • Agricultural production and potential. The proposed project area is one of the most productive agricultural areas of the country, with cashew nuts and rice accounting for 65 percent of the total agricultural production value. Furthermore, the proposed project area has the agro-ecological potential for producing other higher value crops to diversify the agricultural sector.

ADAPTED SITUATION AWARENESS TOOLS AND TAILORED TRAINING SCENARIOS FOR INCREASING CAPABILITIES AND ENHANCING THE PROTECTION OF FIRST RESPONDERS
Company Name UNIVERSITAT POLITECNICA DE VALENCIA
Funded By 38
Country Spain , Western Europe
Project Value 639 Million
Project Detail

The main purpose of ASSISTANCE project is twofold: On the one hand to help and protect different kind of first responders’ (FR) organizations that work together taking into account the type of disaster/crisis they are mitigating in each moment and on the other hand, to enhance their capabilities for facing complex situations providing them advanced training based on Virtual Reality (VR), Mixed Reality (MR) and Augmented Reality (AR), tailored to their real needs depending on the type of incident. ASSISTANCE project will use novel technologies such as; UAV, Robots, drones’ swarms and advanced training based on VR, MR and AR for increasing the FR’s situation awareness (SA) taking into account their need in terms of data (e.g. real time video, persons and objects location, evacuation routes status, ad-hoc network coverage and so on). Different types of adapted SA modules will be developed inside a common SA framework capable of offering the sensor outcome needed by each FR organization (e.g. real time video and resources location for firemen, evacuation routes status for emergency health services and so on). Regarding training, an advanced training network based on VR, MR, AR and other novel technologies and methodologies (e.g. tailored curricula, immersive interfaces, adapted training methodology definition, etc.) will be established in order to share different VR platforms and scenarios for enhancing the current training capabilities and skills of different FRs organization. All the ASSISTANCE results will be tested under controlled conditions in three different demostration pilots. Solutions will be developed in compliance with EU societal values, fundamental rights and applicable legislation, including in the area of privacy and personal data protection. Societal aspects (e.g. perception of security, possible effects of technological solutions on societal resilience, gender diversity) have to be taken into account in a comprehensive and thorough manner.
