  1. Background: The Republic of Somalia has received financing from the World Bank towards the cost of the De-Risking, Inclusion and Value Enhancement of pastoral economies in the Horn of Africa Project (DRIVE); and intends to apply part of the proceeds of the above project to finance the position of the Laison Officer Consultant (Individual Consultant) for MoF. The DRIVE Project is a $327.5 million project to cushion pastoralists in Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia from the impacts of drought and better connect them to markets. DRIVE will strengthen support for pastoralists in the Horn of Africa (HOA) so that they have access to rapid cash when there is a drought, either through their savings or insurance payouts, allowing them to keep their core breeding stock alive. It will also incentivize pastoralists to save more in cash, rather than increasing the size of herds to protect themselves against future shocks. The project will support direct linkages of pastoralists to livestock processors through market contracts, so that they are able to sell livestock on a regular basis and will strengthen quality standards and livestock trade facilitation so that countries can move from the existing live animal value chain to a livestock product value chain. This project uses the existing country systems of the SCALE-UP PIU. Somalia will be supported by an IDA grant of US$ 70 million.
