Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to the AFDB website:

The objective of the integrated study is to develop an integrated urban infrastructure development plan through inclusive and participatory urban planning and management. A road map will be laid out to: (i) improve access to resilient urban infrastructure and basic services; and (ii) strengthen institutional capacity for inclusive and participatory urban planning and management while also tackling gender disparities.

Integrated study of urban infrastructure and climate adaptation in the city of Djibouti was conceived because of the high level of degradation of the quality of basic infrastructure services that heavily affects the living conditions of urban populations and the willingness of the government to prioritise it. The study will be conducted in two phases. Phase 1 (diagnosis) will comprise a review of existing infrastructure development studies and their update, based on the most recent data, including observed and projected climate data, as well as the climate risk and vulnerability assessment. The results of these studies will be crucial for the integrated and streamlined urban development of Djibouti, and more effective and efficient basic urban infrastructure service delivery. Ultimately, this will improve people’s livelihoods and the economy of the city. The study comprises three (3) components, namely: (i) integrated studies with the associated project’s initial environmental and social impact assessment carried out, (ii) institutional support, and (iii) project management.
