The objective is to rapidly assess the impacts of the September 2018 flash floods and heavy rains on
the most severely affected areas and sectors in northeastern Tunisia. The Rapid Needs Assessment (RNA) estimates damages and needs and ultimately produces a
preliminary recovery strategy based on these findings. As the Tunisia Rapid Needs
Assessment was completed ahead of schedule and below budget, the task
team took the opportunity to utilize remaining resources to maintain
dialogue with the Government of Tunisia regarding the resilient recovery and the
strengthening of its DRM system. As a result, the Bank’s DRM and resilience
engagement in Tunisia has broadened significantly, leading to the ongoing preparation of the Tunisia Disaster Resilience Program-for-Results operation.
