Poverty Classification in the City of Luanda, Angola

UDA Consulting will conduct the comprehensive household-level survey in the city of Luanda that will allow for a more precise classification of households by poverty level. The resulting poverty classifications will be used, to calibrate and test an innovative approach to develop exceptionally granular poverty maps using high-resolution satellite imagery and machine-learning techniques.

Survey

Firm-level supply chain resilience - Tanzania

The objective of this assignment is to pilot a firm-level supply chain resilience survey in Tanzania to get a better understanding of the economic impact of transport infrastructure disruptions – primarily due to natural disasters. The data collected will directly inform the currently on-going Tanzania Transport Risk Analysis being undertaken by Oxford Analytics, funded by the Corridors for Growth Multi-donor Trust Fund, administered by the World Bank, with the support of UK Aid.

UDA Team Zambia

Measuring Household Resilience Project in Zambia

The results of the assessment will help in (a) understanding the degree to which the planned interventions of Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPRC) projects enhance household climate resilience in the communities vulnerable to climate risks; and (b) exploring methodologies to quantitatively measure household climate resilience, which can be used to inform a better design of future PPCR and other projects.

Armenia Forest

Armenia forestry-poverty-energy linkages

Armenia’s forests make up less than 10% of its total land area, and have declined by over 10% since 1993.  Despite its limited and diminishing land area, Armenia’s forests provide important services for the local population and for the national economy.

Tanzania Urban Resilience Program (TURP)

Dar es Salaam is one of the fastest growing cities in Sub-Saharan Africa. Much of the urban growth is unplanned, leading to over-crowding and high pressure on public services and drainage systems. The city is frequently affected by floods, leading to high costs in terms of physical loss, as well as loss of life. Due to climate change, the situation is becoming more urgent as the population is increasingly exposed and vulnerable to frequent floods.

Addis Ababa

Household Survey in the cities of Addis Ababa, Adama and Mekele

The objective of the household survey is to inform the analyses on the demand and affordability of housing in the cities of Addis Ababa, Adama and Mekele. A total of 1600 households need to be enumerated, with 1000 households located in Addis Ababa and 300 households each in Adama and Mekele.

Sample Selection

Impact of ICTs on household welfare in Tanzania

Tanzania has been identified as a potential case study based on a number of factors.This activity will involve a household survey to obtain data on ICT usage amongst the bottom 40% of the population in Tanzania, at home, at school and at work, to develop a study on impact, leapfrogging opportunities and potential barriers to them.

Training

Albania Fuelwood Demand Assessment

The objective of the study will be to:

  • i) ascertain the level of demand for fuelwood in Albania,
  • ii) analyze the fuelwood supply chain, processing and combustion to identify opportunities to increase the efficiency of firewood use,
  • iii) estimate the overall balance between the sustainable supply and current demand, and
  • iv) recommend to government any opportunities to improve the supply and efficiency of heating for the rural towns and villages.
Survey in Addis Ababa

Affected urban slums in Ethiopia

In the framework of the work program, the World Bank Group (WBG) in Ethiopia is currently conducting a study measure the economic impact and resilience mechanisms of floods on the affected urban slums in Addis Ababa and Dire Dawa. The study will consist of interviews with randomly selected total of 1200 HHs in Addis Ababa and Dire Dawa .
