The assignment and its deliverables are critical input to our decision process whether and how to further develop and implement a future project on urban resilience. The assignment shall cover the city of Lagos (Nigeria).

The objective of this assignment is to clarify key aspects of the rationale and design of a potential urban resilience project of FSD Africa, with two specific objectives:

  • To develop options and approaches, and assess their feasibility, for the creation of effective public-private collaboration platforms that would enable improvements and transactions of risk management and transfer solutions for urban flood risk in the selected city/cities.
  • To determine the scope, accessibility and relevance of existing data sets and risk models on urban flood risk in the selected city/cities; and to recommend interventions and investments that would improve the quality and relevance of data set and risk models.

Due to the ongoing pandemic and subsequent travel restrictions, most of the work needs to be carried out remotely. The consultant will report to the Assistant Director (Risk) of FSD Africa.
