(Contract Package No.CEIP-1/C3/S4) Credit No-5280- BD PPCR Grant: TF 014713 Introduction The People's Republic ofBangladesh (GOB) has received a credit from International DevelopmentAssociation (the Bank) in an amount of US$ 375 million and a Grant from PilotProgram for Climate Resilience (PPCR), one of the targeted programs of theStrategic Climate Fund (SCF) under the Climate Investment Funds (CIF)of US$ 25million to meet the implementation cost of the CEIP-1.  The overall projectdevelopment objective isto increase the resilience of coastal population to natural disastersandclimate change by rehabilitating and improving the polder system in the contiguoussix coastal districts comprising Satkhira,Khulna, Bagerhat, Pirojpur, Barguna and Patuakhali. The proceeds fromthis credit would be used to eligible payments under this contract asmentionedabove. Coastal districts are characterized by a high pace of population growth.This trend continues to push millions of people to live in the low lyingcoastal areas which are highly vulnerable to natural hazards. The vulnerabilityof the coastal population is on the rise due to climate change.  Climate variabilityand change willaccentuate the intrinsic risks facing coastal Bangladesh.  These risks span: (i)cyclones and storm surges(ii) river bank erosion and vulnerability of islands and chars (shoals), (iii)sea level rise, (iv) salinity intrusion, and (v) coastal erosion.  Much is still to beunderstood of thisdynamic delta. Objective: The main objective of thisResearch Activities on Long TermMonitoring, Research and Analysis of Bangladesh Coastal Zone (SustainablePolders adapted to Coastal Dynamics) is to improve and manage the polderssuccessfully in the coming decades.  It isimportant to have a clear understanding of the relation between the functioningof polders and the ever changing boundary conditions due to the dynamics of theenvironment. Scope of Services: ResearchActivities are requiredfor: (i) creating a framework for polder design, based on understanding of thelong term and large scale dynamics of the delta and on sustainable polderconcepts. These polders should offer their inhabitants a safe environment tolive in and sufficient opportunities for their livelihood. Land use, groundlevel, sedimentation balance inside and outside the polder, and salinity inrivers and ground water are the key parameters in materializing theseconcepts,taking into account the climate change.  (ii)presenting  an overview of values ofrelevant parameters at locations in the polder area, now and in the future, asboundary conditions for polder design and management; (iii) developing a longterm investment plan for implementation of the proposed design and managementimprovements; and (iv) building the analytical foundation and technicalcapacity of BWDB & partners to engage in data driven decision making ontidal flood, storm surges and drought hazards in the coastal region ofBangladesh. The activities envisaged, to perform the above services, arestructured around the following components: InceptionPhase (Polder concepts and coherence in research) Developmentof input datasets for mathematical models Modeling ofthe long-term physical processes Completionphase (Polder design and long term management plan) Investmentplan for future polder improvements Capacitybuilding and communication of results. To adapt to localsituations andusing the available knowledge, a national Research Firm/Institute, experiencedand active in Water Modeling in Bangladesh, could be involved in carrying outthe services, particularly of the Components 2, 3 & 4 above. The broad tasks of the Components are given below: Component1- Inception Phase(Polder concepts and coherence in research):-The inception phase ismeant to review the overall approach of the program and to align strengths andcapacities between consultant and MoWR/BWDB to come to a common policy on itsimplementation. The focus is on how to come to the concept of sustainablepolders and the coherence of the physical processes in the coastal zone to bestudied. Component 2- Development of inputdatasets for mathematical models: This task would cover collection ofall input datasets, undertake Quality Assurance / Quality Checking (QA/QC) andupdate/modify datasets as necessary for use in the modeling of the physicalprocesses in the coastal zone of Bangladesh. Improve the processes ofdatacollection, QA/QC and data dissemination and sharing among the governmentagencies. Component 3- Modeling of thelong-termphysical processes:  This component would develop and useavailable mathematical models and datasets that describe the long-term physicalprocesses in the coastal zone of Bangladesh, taking into account the climatechange. The following long-term physical processes are important in poldermanagement and design; and will subsequently be dealt with under: (a)tidalriver and coastal morphology, on macro, meso and micro scale; (b) subsidence;(c) meteorology; and (d) effect of the climate change on tidal zone andsalinity intrusion. Component 4- Completion phase (Polder design and long termmanagementplan): ThisComponent is to refine concepts for polder design and management to see inwhich of the remaining polders in the CEIP-I these concepts could be applied.Based on the boundary conditions around the polders, that were derived underComponent 3, the promising polder options from the Inception Phase aretranslated into conceptual polder designs. After the Inception phase,the workon elaborating the polder concepts will be continued parallel to the researchon the delta dynamics. One of the main objectives of this component is tocreate a framework for polder design, or as the subtitle of the program says:sustainable polders adapted to the coastal dynamics.  Therefore, to complete thepicture, anoverview of the delta dynamics in the future is useful, also to see wherefuture investments can be most favorable in terms of economical, physical andsocietal aspects. Besides that, after having done all the studies underComponent 3 and the overview of data obtained under Component 2, it is consideredappropriate to see where the interdependencies lie and where future researchwould be most useful. Component 5-Investment plans for future polderimprovements: Under this Component, the Research Team, inconsultation with the Client, will prioritize and define an Investment Plan toimprove the resilience of the communities living in Bangladesh's 139 polders tohydro-meteorological events.  This may beaccomplished in two phases.  The firstphase to assess the elaboration of the design of the final 13 poldersunderCEIP-1, and a second phase to define the Investment Plan for the remaining 122polders. Once the Investment Plan is designed, the Research Team willwork withthe Government of Bangladesh to define a fundraising rationale for the InternationalCommunity to raise the Grant Resources necessary to enable the Government tofinance a necessary revamping of the coastal protection system. Component 6- Capacity building and communication ofresults: This task will ensure that all analyses and results of thestudy, thedata collected and generated, cost-benefit analyses are able to be updated,interactively communicated and understood by a wide range of stakeholders. Also ensurethat the Client and stakeholdersparticipate and are well informed of the developments and results of theproject.

(Contract Package No.CEIP-1/C3/S4) Credit No-5280- BD PPCR Grant: TF 014713 Introduction The People's Republic ofBangladesh (GOB) has received a credit from International DevelopmentAssociation (the Bank) in an amount of US$ 375 million and a Grant from PilotProgram for Climate Resilience (PPCR), one of the targeted programs of theStrategic Climate Fund (SCF) under the Climate Investment Funds (CIF)of US$ 25million to meet the implementation cost of the CEIP-1.  The overall projectdevelopment objective isto increase the resilience of coastal population to natural disastersandclimate change by rehabilitating and improving the polder system in the contiguoussix coastal districts.. Theproceeds from this credit would be used to eligible payments under thiscontract as mentioned above. Objective: The mainobjective of thisResearch Activities on Long TermMonitoring, Research and Analysis of Bangladesh Coastal Zone (SustainablePolders adapted to Coastal Dynamics) is to improve and manage the polderssuccessfully in the coming decades.  It isimportant to have a clear understanding of the relation between the functioningof polders and the ever changing boundary conditions due to the dynamics of theenvironment. Scope of Services: Research Activities are requiredfor: (i) creating a framework for polder design, based on understanding of thelong term and large scale dynamics of the delta and on sustainable polderconcepts. These polders should offer their inhabitants a safe environment tolive in and sufficient opportunities for their livelihood. Land use, groundlevel, sedimentation balance inside and outside the polder, and salinity inrivers and ground water are the key parameters in materializing theseconcepts,taking into account the climate change.  (ii)presenting  an overview of values ofrelevant parameters at locations in the polder area, now and in the future, asboundary conditions for polder design and management; (iii) developing a longterm investment plan for implementation of the proposed design and managementimprovements; and (iv) building the analytical foundation and technicalcapacity of BWDB & partners to engage in data driven decision making ontidal flood, storm surges and drought hazards in the coastal region ofBangladesh. The activities envisaged, to perform the above services, arestructured around the following components: InceptionPhase (Polder concepts and coherence in research) Procurementof equipment for the research work on behalf of BWDB Developmentof input datasets for mathematical models Modeling ofthe long-term physical processes Completionphase (Polder design and long term management plan) Investmentplan for future polder improvements Capacitybuilding and communication of results. To adapt to localsituations andusing the available knowledge, a national Research Firm/Institute, experiencedand active in Water Modeling in Bangladesh, or National Unversity involved inresearch/teaching of water resources/coastal engineering could be involved incarrying out the services, particularly of the Components 2, 3, 4 and7 above. The broad tasks of the Components aregiven below: Component1- Inception Phase(Polder concepts and coherence in research):-The inception phase ismeant to review the overall approach of the program and to align strengths andcapacities between consultant and MoWR/BWDB to come to a common policy on itsimplementation. The focus is on how to come to the concept of sustainablepolders and the coherence of the physical processes in the coastal zone to bestudied. Which should be undertaken after clearunderstanding of existing situation. Laison and consultation with nationaluniversities and/or national research institutes is considered to be importantin this respect Component2- Arrangeprocurement of equipment requiredfor research work the cost of which is expected to to be over US$ 1 million.This will involve preparation of specifications, invitation of bids, theirevaluation and recommendation for procurement, in accordance with therelevantProcurement Guidelines of the World Bank. Component 3- Development of inputdatasets for mathematical models: This task would cover collection ofall input datasets, undertake Quality Assurance / Quality Checking (QA/QC) andupdate/modify datasets as necessary for use in the modeling of the physicalprocesses in the coastal zone of Bangladesh. Improve the processes ofdatacollection, QA/QC and data dissemination and sharing among the governmentagencies. Component 4- Modeling of thelong-termphysical processes:  This component would develop and useavailable mathematical models and datasets that describe the long-term physicalprocesses in the coastal zone of Bangladesh, taking into account the climatechange. The following long-term physical processes are important in poldermanagement and design; and will subsequently be dealt with under: (a)tidalriver and coastal morphology, on macro, meso and micro scale; (b) subsidence;(c) meteorology; and (d) effect of the climate change on tidal zone andsalinity intrusion. Component 5- Completion phase (Polder design and long termmanagementplan): ThisComponent is to refine concepts for polder design and management to see inwhich of the remaining polders in the CEIP-I these concepts could be applied.Based on the boundary conditions around the polders, that were derived underComponent 3, the promising polder options from the Inception Phase aretranslated into conceptual polder designs. After the Inception phase,the workon elaborating the polder concepts will be continued parallel to the researchon the delta dynamics. One of the main objectives of this component is tocreate a framework for polder design, or as the subtitle of the program says:sustainable polders adapted to the coastal dynamics.  Therefore, to complete thepicture, anoverview of the delta dynamics in the future is useful, also to see wherefuture investments can be most favorable in terms of economical, physical andsocietal aspects. Besides that, after having done all the studies underComponent 3 and the overview of data obtained under Component 2, it is consideredappropriate to see where the interdependencies lie and where future researchwould be most useful. Component 6-Investment plans for future polderimprovements: Under this Component, the Research Team, inconsultation with the Client, will prioritize and define an Investment Plan toimprove the resilience of the communities living in Bangladesh's 139 polders tohydro-meteorological events.  This may beaccomplished in two phases.  The firstphase to assess the elaboration of the design of the final 13 poldersunderCEIP-1, and a second phase to define the Investment Plan for the remaining 122polders. Once the Investment Plan is designed, the Research Team willwork withthe Government of Bangladesh to define a fundraising rationale for the InternationalCommunity to raise the Grant Resources necessary to enable the Government tofinance a necessary revamping of the coastal protection system. Component 7- Capacity building andcommunication of results: This task will ensure that all analyses and results ofthestudy, the data collected and generated, cost-benefit analyses are able tobe updated, interactively communicated and understood by a wide range ofstakeholders.

The major component of the project is an improvement of silostorage system to storemilled rice (and wheat to a lesser extent) with a total capacity of around 535,500 tons. Subject to fullcompliance with the requirements in the publicly disclosed ESAMF and prior completion of all complementary site-specific studiesand analyses required, the silos would be constructed at about eight sites in various strategic locations across the country. Theeight sites proposed are on land currently owned by theDG Food, and no land acquisition will be required. BCCRF funds are expectedto be used for silo construction at the Narayangang site. Subject to the above requirements or in the event thatend-of-construction date at that site would go beyond the BCCRF Grant Agreement closing date, these funds could be used for thesilo construction at another project site, subject to prior consultations and approval by the BCCRF Management Committee. Overall Project Objective: The overall projectdevelopmentobjective is to increase the grain reserve available to households tomeet their post-disaster needs and improve theefficiency of grain storage management. Specific Objective of The Project The following are the key objectives of the project (i)        Increased availability of grain stocks immediately following a major disasterevent; (ii)      Increased number of households whose grain needs can be met immediately after Thedisaster; (iii)     Improved efficacy of the grain storage system, and monitoring and management of the Food stock in thecountry; (iv)     Reduced loss in grain stocks relative to pre-project losses; (v)       Reduced cost in storing foods and its transportation and distribution; (vi)     Ensured better monitoring, and improved governance and management of food stocks; (vii)   Achieved higher operational efficiency; (viii)  MinimizedLand area required; (ix)        Ensured higher security against pilferage; and (x)           Minimized insect pestinfestation and grain moulds. Description of the Project Components: Component A ? Construction of Modern Grain Storage SiloFacilities The primaryobjective of this component is: i) to improve the storage capacity for grain at the country level by financing the constructionof modern steel silos for rice and wheat, that will be built in accordance with social and environmental sustainability parametersand safeguards compliance criteria; and (ii) facilitate the access of households to domestic silos for food grain and seed storage,to improve household level food security during and after natural disasters. This component would include: (A1) Public storagefacilities in the form of modern grain storage silos; (A2) Household level storage facility or family silos particularly in thedisaster prone areas of the coastal zone; and (A3) Implementation of social and environmental management plans.
