Mott MacDonald will provide climate change consultancy services to the World Bank on the Southern Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden in Djibouti, Sudan and Yemen.
Mott MacDonald’s international development consultancy Euroconsult Mott MacDonald will work with the World Bank on a project looking at the impacts of climate change on the coastal communities.
The work will help governments in the area to make investments in sectors that will help to “climate proof” their communities against sea level rises, land loss, changes in coastal storms and flooding and beach erosion. Phase 1 of the project is due for completion at the beginning of 2012.
Mott MacDonald is also providing technical assistance to Pakistan’s Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) for a climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction project in Punjab province after it was hit by catastrophic floods in 2010.
