Résumé partiel
The main objective of the project is to enhance disaster resilience through employment-intensive waterworks in Jijiga and refugee-hosting communities of Kebribeyah. This project will bring sustainable water supplies and better sanitation practices, and flood mitigation and protection to 505 people living in the refugee-hosting communities of Kebribeyah and Jigjiga, Somali Regional State. The Project’s rationale is to enable quick economic and social recovery by restoring infrastructure to flood-affected communities and enhance their resilience to disasters through the provision of flood protection and mitigation measures, and Water and Sanitation (WatSan) intervention. This project will build on the existing ILO activities, partnership and accumulated expertise in the target areas through PROSPECTS partnership to allow for effective and efficient project implementation. ILO will deliver intended results through community participation and labour based technology approaches throughout the 12 months at an estimated budget of $1,102,690. Specifically, the project will focus on : 1. Government capacity building on flood protection (The project bases up and uses the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction ), aiming : 1.1 Ensure timely flood early warning messages are reaching communities residing in high-risk flood areas and ensure minimum preparedness plans and evacuation measures in case of flood damages and displacement. 1.2 Create information exchange linkages between regional and Woreda offices. 2. Micro dam and detention pond construction/rehabilitation for flood protection duly used for irrigation development and animal feeding respectively. 2.1 Reinforce structural flood prevention and mitigation measures 2.2 Create community awareness on flood early warning and early actions, and ensure timely exchange of flood early warning information between communities living upstream and downstream. 3. Water and sanitation facilities to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 outbreak in refugee settings. 3.1 rehabilitation of communal dry latrines and water distribution system through labor-intensive public works 3.2 Create community awareness on precautionary practices against the COVID-19 pandemic
