Indicative Programme (MIP) for 2021-2027. They have been working together on
three flagship initiatives : “Sustainable Cocoa”, “Low Carbon Transition”, “Peace
d’Ivoire is the first producer of cacao in the world, making it the second
strongest economy in West Africa. However the COVID pandemic has significantly
stunted its economic growth. In order to counter this, the EU has launched a
three-pronged project to boost the Cote d’Ivoire’s sustainable growth; to develop
its human capital; to ensure and maintain peace and stability.
The EU has
both an economic and political interest in the project, being the first cocoa
consumer and having adopted the “Global Gateway” strategy for Sub-Saharan
Africa. This specific strategy aims at boosting the digital, energy and
transport sectors. This project is also aligned with the European Green Deal
and the Paris Agreements of 2015.
The overall aim of the project is to intensify
the impact of the EU in Cote d’Ivoire through the TEIs and by promoting the
shared values between both stakeholders. This project also has three different
focuses : the implementation and monitoring of the TEIs, including the
coordination between the stakeholders; the coordination and the communication
on the various sectorial policies; the communication and visibility around the

The purpose of this TRTA
assignment is to support the Government of Tajikistan and ADB in (i) climate
change assessments to be used to identify the potential pipeline of investment
projects (Phase I) and (ii) preparation of the climate change adaptation
project as one of the potential pipeline projects (Phase II).
The climate change assessments
will build on the analysis undertaken for preparation of the PRBMP and a
multitude of other studies carried out in Tajikistan. As well as those
mentioned above this will include the Cryospheric Observation and Modelling for
Improved Adaptation in Central Asia (CROMO-ADAPT) project funded by the Swiss
Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). The added-value of the TRTA will be
in utilizing this existing knowledge to downscale climate impacts at local
level within the river basin. This will include identifying areas within the
basin with the highest exposure and sensitivity to climate change
(vulnerability mapping) and to then prioritize actions to build more resilient
communities. This will require an understanding of climate impacts on rural
livelihoods, especially on women and marginalized groups, so that equitable
interventions can be developed. Progress will be dependent on the data
available to undertake the climate change assessments. We will make use of
remote sensing to obtain data in the absence of field data, although this
should be ground-truthed.
Based on the successful delivery of climate change
assessments under Phase I we will enter Phase II and will commence the
preparation of the climate change adaptation project.
To begin with, the inception
report will include (a) activities to be undertaken for each of the
deliverables of the TA facility; (b) required studies and quality control plan;
(c) mobilization of experts (field and home office); (d) methodology and
contents of the draft reports in line with the RRP and linked documents; and
(e) detailed work program for Phase II activities.

It is embedded in the Government of Ghana's TVET policy which has as its objective to "improve the productivity and competitiveness of the skilled workforce and raise the income-earning capacities of people, especially women and low-income groups, through the provision of quality-oriented, industry-focused, and competency-based training programmes and complementary services".
To execute this charge, the GSDF, over the course of its implementation will provide 700 competitive grants to private enterprises. At least 42,000 individuals are expected to be employed in these private enterprises six months after the implementation of the grant, resulting in increased income and better welfare for Ghanaians.
The fund has four windows:
The fund will be a catalytic, demand-led,
risk and cost-sharing instrument that will mobilize innovative ideas to bring
about the creativity of Ghana’s private sector and its training institutes
offering new trainings and services.

The small island states of the Pacific face significant structural challenges to economic growth and sustainable development. Combined with the impacts of global climate change and ocean acidification, these threaten most dimensions of development in the region. In this context, both oceanic and coastal fisheries still remain the most important marine resource for livelihoods, employment, food security and economic growth opportunities in the Pacific islands.
Positive developments have taken
place in order to facilitate market access for the processing of these fishery
resources (tuna, in particular) and their export to the European Union (EU). A number
of Pacific states now benefit from a more favourable arrangement for trade
between the two regions, and other regional initiatives have brought on
improvements in the sustainable use of the region’s fisheries resources. At the
national level, significant steps have also been taken in support of
sustainable marine resource management.
Despite such improvements, key
challenges remain to be addressed and form the rationale for essential
interventions such as the multi-partner Pacific-European Union Marine Partnership
(PEUMP) Programme. Funded by the EU (EUR 35 million) and the Government of
Sweden (EUR 10 million), this 5-year action (2018-2023) focuses on providing equitable
benefits for all Pacific states, whilst recognising the diversity of resources,
needs and opportunities among its 15 Pacific-African Caribbean Pacific (P-ACP)
countries of operation – the Cook Islands, Fiji, Federated States of Micronesia,
Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Republic of the Marshall
Islands, Tuvalu, Tonga, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor Leste and Vanuatu.
by several agencies (the Pacific Community (SPC), the Forum Fisheries Agency
(FFA), the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP)
and the University of the South Pacific (USP), in collaboration with key
governmental and non-governmental organisations in the region), the PEUMP
Programme aims overall to ‘improve the economic, social and environmental
benefits for these 15 P-ACP states arising from stronger regional economic
integration and the sustainable management of natural resources and the
environment.’ Its specific objective is to ‘support sustainable management and
development of fisheries for food security and economic growth, while
addressing climate change resilience and conservation of marine biodiversity.’
Its activities revolve around
six Key Result Areas (KRAs) and a Programme Management Unit (PMU). The six KRAs
are aligned with the two focal sectors of the regional roadmap – oceanic and

This contract was awarded under the World Bank Urban
Flood Risk Assessment Framework.
In response to the 2021 request for assistance from the
Government, the World Bank has mobilized grant funding to support the Government
of Burundi. The funding will be used for a Preliminary
Flood Risk Assessment. The proposed assignment, will consist of (i) the
consolidation and development of baseline information, such as hazard dynamics,
exposure, and vulnerability data; (ii) flood risk modelling; and (iii) risk
'hot spots' identification and providing options for investment to mitigate those risks in the two city
environments in Burundi (Gatumba, Bujumbura).
The assignment's primary
objective is to identify areas at risk of floods in two urban areas in Burundi
(Gatumba and Bujumbura) and provide recommendations on short-, medium- and
long-term options for risk mitigation.
The recommended flood risk mitigation options will be based on feasibility
assessment and cost options appraisal in order for the Bank to engage in a
dialogue with the Government of Burundi. It will be preliminary by nature and
is expected to support urban climate resilience measures to be taken by the
Government. This assignment's end product should detail a well-balanced set of
recommended structural and non-structural risk management options for these
urban areas and surrounding catchments for consideration by the Government of
Burundi. It will feed the dialogue between
the Bank and Government of Burundi in order for the Government to define its
path forward in realizing the most effective investments for reducing flood
risks to an acceptable level in these areas.

The primary objective of the
assignment is the identification of areas at risk of floods in 7 urban areas in
Niger (Niamey, Maradi/Tibiri/Guidan Roumji, Tessaoua, Diffa, Gaya,
Agadez/Tchirozerine, Tahoua), and the development of a set of prioritised
short-, medium- and long-term actions for risk mitigation. Recognising the
serious and potentially worsening impact of drought on the country, and the
clear benefits some approaches to flood risk management could bring to reducing
the impacts of drought, the study will investigate the causes, impacts and
frequency of surface water resource shortage within the proposed cities in
order to ensure the benefits from flood risk interventions achieve the best
The prioritisation of flood
risk mitigation actions will be based on feasibility assessment and cost
options appraisal that will inform a dialogue between World Bank and the
Government of Niger. It will be preliminary by nature and is expected to
support urban climate resilience measures. This assignment’s end product should
detail a well-balanced set of structural and non-structural risk management
options for these urban areas and their surrounding catchments. It will feed
the dialogue between the Bank and Government of Niger to define a path forward
in realising the most effective investments for reducing flood risks to an acceptable
level in these areas.
