WEE Pros along its partners (Dar Al Omran and Taif Consulting Engineers) are working on technical assistance consultancy funded by the World Bank in Libya. The principle objective of this consultancy is to work closely with the Libyan water sector institutions led by the GAWR to carry out the capacity building activities focusing on aspects that will help the water institutions to stem service decline and to manage future shocks.
The consortium will work with the General Authority of Water Resources as the leading water institution in Libya and coordinate implementation at the local level with other relevant institutions to provide advice, capacity building and training to support them to become more resilient through the implementation of the following components:
- Formulating contingency plans for emergency response at the city level (one major city to be selected in consultation with the World Bank team and the GAWR)
- Improving basic data at the utility performance and customers
- and Improving procurement and contract management capacity to facilitate re-engagement with international private contractors
