The African Development Bank (AfDB) and the Urban and Municipal Development Fund (UMDF) hereby invite Consulting Firms to indicate their interest in the following assignment: Implement the UMDF Cities Diagnostic Methodology in five African cities

The AfDB Board of Directors approved in February 2019, the creation of the Urban Municipal Development Fund (UMDF). The UMDF will support African cities and municipalities improve their resilience and better manage urban growth and development through planning, governance and improved quality of public services. The UMDF is being structured around four main pillars that will define the Fund’s mandate and working program: (a) improved urban planning, (b) improved project preparation (i.e., pre-investment phase), (c) improved municipal governance and finance, and (d) increased support towards integrated urban development.

The UMDF would like to receive by 7th August 2019 expressions of interest by consulting firms indicating their experience and track record in the areas of integrated urban planning,  climate change impact on cities sustainability, and urban infrastructure finance. The EOI should be submitted electronically in PDF format. The EOIs process will be followed by the development of a short list, and a request for proposals (technical and financial) of firms on the short list.
