The World Bank is supporting the Oyo State Government to implement the Ibadan Urban Flood Management Project (IUFMP) that aims at 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 food risk management in the city of Ibadan. It reinforces Oyo State Government’s early warning and response capabilities and leverages existing World Bank projects in Oyo State in support of the IUFMP.
Specifically, the Bank’s support will finance some priority investments related to improving the infrastructure of Ibadan City, especially those destroyed by the August 26, 2011 floods. The Bank’s support will also help Ibadan reduce flood risks, improve waste collection and treatment, while developing and improving the quality of existing infrastructural assets.
The project is designed to keep a good balance between urgent post disaster needs (dredging, reconstruction of bridges, roads, etc.) and medium-to-long term needs (institutional support, upgrading existing and building new infrastructure to upgrade services and mitigate future risks). Selected sub – projects should comply with regional and local government plans, address critical issues described above to integrate planning and operational aspects that maximize the benefits of infrastructure investments to the beneficiary communities in the long run.
