According to bank provided information, the proposed project objective is to strengthen the capacity for flood forecasting and early warning and improve the operation and maintenance of small water harvesting and flood management structures.
The proposed project will support activities organized into three components:
Component 2: Improving the Maintenance of Small-scale Water Storage Structures (USD 0.90million). This component will support the Water Harvesting Directorate of MoIWR in their endeavor to reduce the failure risk of small dams and water harvesting structures (haffirs) and asset management procedures for other flood management structures, such as retarding basins and river embankments. Special attention will be paid to the management of haffirs as an entry point for the MoIWR and local government to enhance the asset management procedures for other larger-scale infrastructures. Activities under this component aim to address community level adaptive capacities to mitigate the risk of floods and effectively harness flood waters in haffirs for productive livelihood activities. This component will finance: (i) baseline survey and update the inventory of small dams and haffirs that will include the key dimensions and development of failure risk index; (ii) development of guidelines, standard operating procedure (SOP), and emergency operation plan (EOP) for haffirs, small dams and flood management structures; (iii) minor rehabilitation of damaged haffirs; and (iv) Piloting of community-based management structures to ensure sustainability. The target site of pilot small scale rehabilitation and establishment of community-based management structures will be determined on the basis of small dam inventory prepared through the project. Community-based management system will ensure active participation of women in decision-making and management of water services. Building on the lessons learned through the piloting, the manuals and guidelines will be rolled out to broader areas, and related training will be conducted in collaboration with pertinent stakeholders such as the Civil Defense.
Component 3: Institutional Capacity Building and Project Management (USD 0.70 million). This component includes various technical assistance activities, designed to: (i) support preparation and
supervision of all structural and non-structural investments planned under the project, including the rehabilitation of Nile FEWS, development of pilot FEWS (Component 1), and pilot rehabilitation of haffirs (Component 2); (ii) strengthen GoS's capacity to prioritize and plan future investments related to flood management and water resources management; (iii) develop and implement capacity building activities including training, procurement of workstations and related goods, etc.; and (iv) project management support including technical assistance and incremental operating costs on project management, technical, fiduciary, monitoring and evaluation, communications and safeguards expertise.
