Implementation Support for Achieving 24 Hours Water Supply In Delhi Phase I -Distribution Improvement (World Bank Funded Project)
The project was undertaken jointly by the Government of the National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD) and Delhi Jal Board (DJB). It involved a systematic and sustainable improvement in the water distribution system of South II and South III zones, essentially by converting from intermittent to continuous supply (“24/7”) through the introduction of appropriate infrastructure, operating and management practices, and a supporting institutional and policy framework. ACE was associated with Poyry Environment, GmbH (Formerly GKW Consult, Germany) as engineering consultants. We were engaged in field investigation, identification of system deficiency, preparation of rehabilitation budgetary estimate and implementation plan for works and engineering services for water supply and sewage network system.
Flood Mitigation and Resilience Project in Ibadan City, Oyo State, Nigeria.
The Federal Government of Nigeria on behalf of Oyo State Government has applied for financing from the World Bank toward the cost of 200 Million USD for the Ibadan Urban Flood Management Project (IUFMP). IUFMP was initiated from Dec 2014 to improve the capacity of Oyo State through developing a long-term flood risk management framework by initiating risk assessment, community awareness, and providing enough flexibility in the project design to make changes based on learning. The project also supports capacity building for flood risk management in the city of Ibadan. It would reinforce Oyo State government’s early warning and response capabilities and leverages existing World Bank projects (such as the Community and Social Development Project, CSDP) in Oyo State in support of the IUFMP.
ACE is engaged by IUFMP for Flood Mitigation and Resilience project in Ibadan city. ACE has developed the methodologies to address the flood hazard impacts, result framework and produced baseline data through flood site investigations surveys and household surveys covering the 6000 samples in the city area and developed the geo-spatial database. The outcome of the study provides the information about the selection of investments by identifying vulnerable sites and households and serves as benchmark for evaluating how the project improves the capacity of Oyo state to effectively manage flood risk in Ibadan City throughout the lifecycle of project. It also enablesthe Client to track progress over time, the ability to compare the vulnerability status at IUFMP project completion, evaluate any impacts of future events, and facilitate learning.
