Background:

The Enhancing Climate Change Adaptation in the North Coast and Nile Delta Regions in Egypt Project (ECCADP) aims at supporting the adaptation efforts of Egypt in the North coast and in particular the Nile Delta which is identified by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in its Fourth Assessment Report as one of the world’s three “extremely” vulnerable deltas in the world.

The objective of the ECCADP is to reduce coastal flooding risks in Egypt’s North Coast due to the combination of projected sea level rise and more frequent and intense extreme storm events. Output 1 focuses on constructing 69 km of sand dune dikes at five vulnerable hotspots within the Nile Delta that were identified during an engineering scoping assessment and technical feasibility study. Output 2 focuses on the development of a climate resilient Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) plan for the entire North Coast of Egypt, to manage long-term risks including climate change.

The ECCADP will facilitate transformational change in the short-term by reducing coastal flooding threats along vulnerable hotspots in the Delta and in the long-term by integrating additional risks of climate change into coastal management and planning, budgeting and implementation of risk reduction measures. The ECCADP is implemented by the Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation (MWRI) and is jointly funded by the Government of Egypt (GoE), the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

 

The ECCADP seeks within its component no. 2 to recruit a competent consultant to Develop and assist the Implementation of a climate resilient ICZM plan for the North Coast of Egypt. The nominated consultant will build on the various outputs of the ICZM scoping study (http://iczmegyptmaps.ihcantabria.com/Visor) that was undertaken within the GEF/UNDP funded project, Adaptation to Climate Change in the Nile Delta through ICZM (ACCADP) which was completed in June 2018.� These outputs include, but not limited to, the following:

  • Compilation, analysis and integration of existing information of the North Coastal zone in Egypt to Identify physical, ecological and socioeconomic aspects, key issues and management priorities.
  • Awareness raising material to coastal stakeholders, including, governmental authorities, public agencies, private sector, NGOs, society, etc.
  • Assessment of the legal and institutional frameworks that govern the coastal zone in the North Coast in Egypt.

 

Objectives:

The overall objective of this assignment is to develop a climate resilient ICZM plan for the north Egyptian coastal zone. The assignment will raise the adaptive capacity of planning and implementing organizations in Egypt, rendering them more equipped to proactively address sea level rise and extreme weather events vulnerability and propose, design and implement integrated solutions that enjoy broad support of relevant stakeholders. The Specific objectives of the study include the following:

 

Providing all the instruments required for gathering the information on which ICZM is built.

This objective includes: Systems for coastal and ocean observation (in situ and remote sensing), systems for data retrieval and data analysis, numerical model systems for short-term forecasts and long-term trends in oceanic conditions and coastal impacts, integrated assessments tools for identifying and comparing alternatives.

Providing the required knowledge of coastal vulnerability and risks.

This objective includes: Identification of coastal vulnerabilities and assessment of how risks evolve with time under climate change, for different coastal regions and for different scenarios (climate and socio-economic).

Providing the required know-how through capacity building.

This objective includes: Transfer of knowledge and training how to use, maintain and improve observation systems, data analysis systems, numerical simulation and forecasting models. Training on methods for integrated risk assessment and on strategies to promote participation and cooperation in ICZM.

Providing a framework for integrated decision-making.

This objective includes the development of coastal planning procedures adapted to the Egyptian governance context, considering legal and organizational aspects of coastal adaptation, awareness raising and stakeholder participation in planning and decision making.

Providing action plans for alleviating coastal, environmental, economic and social risks.

This objective includes, but not limited to, the development of actions plans for alleviating potential coastal, environmental, economic and social risks. For example, Shoreline Management Plans need to be developed outlining best practices (planning measures, hard and soft measures, working-with-nature) for protecting vulnerable areas (including all types of land use and infrastructure) following an adaptive step wise approach against flood risks and also addressing other coastal risks that may result from climate change in conjunction with socio-economic developments, in particular the risk of increased soil salinization in the coastal zone. Similar plans need to be developed for other potential risks.

Scope of Work and Deliverables:

The study will provide a detailed climate resilient plan for the entire North Coast of Egypt through Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) approach, together with the required underlying institutional and regulatory frameworks and information systems for implementation. The plan will also integrate adaptation measures against the various potential sea-level rise impacts into the national coastal zone development plan. To meet this objective an associated ocean and coastal observation system will be established to monitor trends in oceanic and coastal conditions under a changing climate as well as the impact of the different shore protection scenarios on the coastal erosion and shoreline stability.
