Description

This project is ADB's first integrated preemptive landslide risk reduction investment to safeguard rural communities in the Kyrgyz Republic. This innovative project will embed international best practices and advanced technologies for improved risk reduction and monitoring. It will combine engineering and nature-based solutions with community-based planning and capacity building for sustainable long-term landslide safety. The project will reduce the risk to communities and infrastructure from landslide events by: (i) implementing landslide mitigation engineering measures, (ii) improving landslide monitoring systems, and (iii) strengthening capacity for landslide risk management.

The project is aligned with the following impacts: (i) human and material loss from climate- and geophysical-related disasters reduced, and (ii) level of protection of the population and territories from emergency situations increased for sustainable development. The project will have the following outcome: vulnerability and exposure of communities and infrastructure to landslide events reduced.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The Kyrgyz Republic is in a seismically active area with highly variable weather patters and is at a high risk of the impacts of geophysical disasters and climate change. Landslides triggered by snowmelt, precipitation, and seismic activity are a frequent occurrence particularly in the Fergana Valley in the south west of the country. They cause injury and loss of life, damaging infrastructure and settlements, and disrupting basic services, transport, and logistics. Landslides may become more frequent due to earlier snowmelt, melting permafrost, and more intense precipitation events.

The national development program for 2018-2022 includes proactive management of disaster and climate change risks, and reduction of geophysical risks. The Strategy for the Comprehensive Protection of the Population and the Territory of the Kyrgyz Republic from Emergency Situations for 2018-2030 seeks to reduce disaster losses through, among other measures, improved monitoring, forecasting, and construction of protective structures. The Kyrgyz Republic Nationally Determined Contribution to the UNFCCC Paris Agreement includes its intent to prevent climate change related damage and losses to the country.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services
A consultant firm led by international experts will be recruited to provide expertise that cannot be found in the local market to support implementation of the project. The consulting services are estimated to require 50 person-months of international specialists and 193 person-months of national specialists. The services will cover: overall project management, oversight, and coordination; design and procurement; financial management; monitoring and evaluation; construction supervision; and capacity building. All consultants will be recruited according to Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and Procurement Regulations for ADB Borrowers (2017 as amended from time to time). The firms will be engaged using the quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS) method with a standard qualitycost ratio of 90:10.
Procurement

All procurement of goods, works, consulting services, and non-consulting services will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and Procurement Regulations for ADB Borrowers (2017 as amended from time to time). The project is expected to procure goods, works, and consulting service contract packages.

Before the start of any procurement, ADB and the government will review the public procurement laws of the central and state governments to ensure consistency with ADB's Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and Procurement Regulations for ADB Borrowers (2017, as amended from time to time).
