What's measured can be managed : high-risk settlements in Colombia

World Bank - Latin America & Caribbean - Wed, 12/17/2014 - 11:00
This issue focuses on communities in Colombia at high-risk to natural disasters. Policymakers continue long-term efforts to understand the scope of the problem and target measures to reduce the vulnerability of people living at risk to flooding and landslides. Two significant observations surfaced from an initial research of various Colombian municipalities, and examining different methodologies and employed to quantify the number of households living in high-risk areas: 1) there was no consistent or systematic methodology to collect information needed to assess risk at the community level, nor to generate local hazards assessments for floods and landslides; and 2) there was no centralized data-sharing platform existed for national ministries and agencies to easily and cost-effectively access household information obtained at the municipal level. After deliberation and analysis by stakeholders and partners, a new standardized methodology was developed. The following elements emerged that supported the roll-out of the National Inventory of High-Risk Settlements to streamline decision-making processes: 1) a set of criteria was defined for all municipalities to extract inventory data from previous technical studies and emergency reports; 2) the methodology to build the national inventory was developed in consideration of limited technical capacity in many municipalities; 3) a centralized information platform for the national settlement inventory was established based on the methodology to permit municipal agencies to collect and share data more easily; and 4) the Ministry of Housing, City, and Territory issued a Ministerial Resolution that legally requires municipalities to adhere to the methodology to develop the National Inventory of High-Risk Settlements. While being no small task, building the National Inventory of High-Risk Settlements will have a significant impact on Colombia’s ability to address urbanization trends by reducing risk.2014-12-10T05:00:00.000Z2014-12-10T05:00:00.000Z93097ColombiaLatin America & CaribbeanEnglishWhat's measured can be managed : high-risk settlements in ColombiaBriefEnglishLatin America & CaribbeanColombia

The Drought Events’ Impact Mitigating Investment Project Financing of Uruguay has an objective of the proposed operation is to enhance the GoU’s efforts to mitigate the effect of adverse weather conditions on its public sector accounts and to enhance the efficiency of its risk management framework used to mitigate these risks. The operation has one component: Mitigation of the effects of adverse weather conditions by enhancing FEE’s ability to cushion the impact on public sector accounts. This consists of provision of contingent financing to CND that will on-lend the proceeds to the FEE through the trustee CONAFIN AFISA to capitalize the FEE to mitigate the effects of adverse weather conditions when disbursement conditions have been met. This project will contribute to reducing the probability of Government having to transfer resources to UTE and the amount of these additional transfers needed by UTE to face drought related unexpected costs of electricity generation.2014-12-03T05:00:00.000Z2014-12-03T05:00:00.000ZUruguayP149069UYActiveCHANGE

The project Barbados Second HIV/AIDS Project has changed to Closed. To see more information, see the project information in the World Bank project database

The objective of the Second HIV/AIDS Project for Barbados will support the implementation of the national strategic plan for HIV prevention and control 2008-2013, specifically to increase: (a) adoption of safe behaviors, in particular amongst key populations at higher risk; and (b) access to prevention, treatment and social care, in particular for key populations at higher risk. There are two components to the project. The first component is the prevention and care. This program aims at strengthening the ability of the public and private sectors and civil society to co-ordinate monitor and evaluate their activities and use data to continually increase the quality of their programs. Specific activities will include: (i) building capacity that will help the Government of Barbados (GOB) and civil society increase their ability to formulate a vision, policies, strategies, and plans of action; mobilize financial resources; and conduct operations relevant to HIVIAIDS; (ii) strengthening surveillance; and (iii) addressing the critical issue of Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) within the HIV/AIDS program. The second component is the institutional strengthening. The objective of this component is to strengthen agencies and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) through training and technical assistance that would not be funded under the regular program. While routine surveillance, seroprevalence and behavioral surveys, and quality audits will be carried out under Component one, the second component will include no routine training and technical assistance to review the surveillance system, and put in place sero and behavior surveillance and quality audits and assist with standardization of data collection methodologies, particularly in the case of behavior surveillance. Component two will follow Bank procurement rules, and disburse over the life of the project on the basis of reports.2014-12-02T05:00:00.000Z2014-12-02T05:00:00.000ZBarbadosP106623BBClosedCHANGE

The project BR Rural Environmental Cadastre in Bahia is now in the pipeline. To see more information, see the project information in the World Bank project database

The development objective of the Rural Environmental Cadastre and Fire Prevention in Bahia State Project for Brazil is to promote the reduction of climate change impacts in the Cerrado of the west of the Bahia state by: (i) promoting the environmental regularization of landholdings in the targeted municipalities and support actions to promote recovery of environmental liabilities; and (ii) strengthening the state's capacity to prevent and combat forest fires through the integration of local actors and promoting the adoption of sustainable production practices in the targeted municipalities. The project comprises of three components. The first component, rural environmental regularization aims to promote environmental regularization by implementing the cadastro ambiental rural (rural environmental cadastre) (CAR) for small landholders and promoting the recovery of degraded areas in area de preservacao permanente (area of permanent preservation) (APPs) and reserva legal (legal reserve) RLs in these landholdings located in the targeted municipalities. The second component, aims to strengthen the capacity to prevent and fight forest fires and promote alternatives to the use of fire in the state of Bahia, especially in the project's targeted municipalities. The third component, administrative and financial management aims to support the project's effective and efficient management, administration, monitoring, and evaluation.2014-11-20T05:00:00.000Z2014-11-20T05:00:00.000ZBrazilP143376BRNEW RELEASENEW
