Credit No.: 4219 Project

This request for expression of interest follows the General Procurement Notice for this project that appeared in the dgMarket website, issue No. 1688882 of March 20th, 2007.
The Federal Government of Nigeria has received a credit from the International Development Association (IDA) and intends to apply part of the proceeds of this credit to payment under the Consultancy Services for the Preparation of a Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) for the Gbagada / Bariga Canal and Foot Bridges.
The Lagos Metropolitan Development and Governance Project is a major investment in improving the quality of life of Lagos State inhabitants, especially those in the slums.
The Project’s Development Objectives are (i) to increase sustainable access to basic urban services through investments in critical infrastructure and (ii) enhance capacity for urban management.
The Physical investment support for drainage is limited to ongoing work on two drainage channels, and on tertiary drainage and minor bridges necessary to facilitate access to the schools and health centers being built of which the
Gbagada- Bariga Canal and Foot bridges forms an integral part.
In the course of project implementation, there is the possibility that the Construction of the Gbagada/ Bariga Canal and construction of foot bridges facilities on the canal could lead to loss of land or restriction of access to sources of livelihood. When this happens, the Involuntary Resettlement Policy (OP 4.12) of the World Bank would be triggered.
In consonance to the Resettlement Framework Policy concluded at inception of the project, the project is set to complete the documentation process on Resettlement Action Plan for the Gbagada- Bariga Canal and Footbridges subprojects planned for the procurement plan of 2013.
The aim of the consultancy services will be to assess the potential Resettlement Action Plan of the proposed Gbagada- Bariga Canal including footbridges across the canal and the associated infrastructures as described in the project scope and prepare a Resettlement Action Plan (RAP). The study will be carried out to establish modalities of implementing the project in line with Nigeria Environmental and land use policies and laws as well as with the World Bank’s.
