The Somali Urban Investment Preparation Project (SUIPP) Project Number P150374 Is Project to Prepare project that is support feasibility, assessment and preliminary design studies for urban investment activities, which could be funded from a Multi Partner Fund (MPF), in the municipality of Hargeisa. Apart from preparation of the project, this project intends to build the capacity of Hargeisa Municipality in order to be able in managing the upcoming SUDP project.  


The SUIPP comprises a “project to prepare a project”. The main project – to be prepared by SUIPP -, called the Somali Urban Development Project (SUDP), intended for support by the MPF. Pursuant to relevant Bank Operating Procedures, which specifically allow for such situations, and given that the project has an environmental safeguard categorization of B, the activities to be supported under the SUDP will include both detailed project design and implementation. The activities to be undertaken under the SUDP in Somaliland constitute the enhancement of solid and liquid waste management and water supply in Hargeisa, the extension and institutionalization of the Local Development Fund, and institutional strengthening activities focused on the Hargeisa Municipality and the Hargeisa Water Agency.


Preliminary preparation, which includes feasibility studies and preliminary design for the main infrastructure activities under the SUDP, as well as a number of potential urban infrastructure investments on the Somaliland territories, and a range of institutional assessments, will be undertaken under the SUIPP – i.e. the project which forms the subject of Project Implementation Manual - also to be supported by the MPF. Some of the output of the technical work undertaken under the SUIPP will provide the basis for the preparation of the SUDP, while the scope of TA should also be applicable to urban development projects in a variety of different funding contexts. It should be noted that final design work itself – e.g. detailed engineering design, social and environmental impact assessments, exploratory drilling and preparation of bidding documents – will not be undertaken as part of the SUIPP. They will be undertaken as part of the SUDP or other projects under different financing arrangements and funding to cover these costs will be included in the project documentation and proposals relating to that operation.
