objective of this Grant is to support the efforts of the Government of Senegal
(GoS) in building resilience against select natural hazards at the national
and local levels by providing technical assistance in: (i) developing flood
risk assessments and plans to inform investments and regulations, and (ii)
strengthening flood resilience through preparedness and response capacities.
Specifically, the study aims to better inform the preparation of the proposed
IDA-financed Stormwater Management and Climate Change Adaptation Project
(PROGEP 2) (P175830) and support the Government’s request to develop an
integrated risk-sensitive urban planning and risk-informed urban investments
in Dakar and select secondary cities.
