To address the increasing threat posed by natural disasters and climate change, the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat (AKAH) works to ensure that poor people live in physical settings that are as safe as possible from the effects of natural disasters; that residents who do live in high-risk areas are able to cope with disasters in terms of preparedness and response; and that these settings provide access to social and financial services that lead to greater opportunity and a better quality of life. The Aga Khan Agency for Habitat was created in 2016 by bringing together several AKDN agencies and programmes that had been established to tackle issues related to improving habitats and resources such as: Aga Khan Planning and Building Services, Focus Humanitarian Response, Disaster Risk Management Initiative and Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan Fund for the Environment.
One of AKAH Tajikistan’s flagship projects is the Khorog Urban Resilience Programme. The Khorog Urban Resilience Programme – Planning and Proof of Concept Initiative is an initial five-year of the Government of Tajikistan, the Government of Switzerland and the Aga Khan Development Network to align communities, public institutions and civil society institutions around the delivery of a shared investment plan for Khorog which is underpinned by principles of Resiliency as reflected by the UNDRR Resilient Cities Framework. A critical component of enabling this integration of stakeholders will be the utilization of a steering committee chaired by the Governor of GBAO with representation of the National Government, the International Community and other important advocates in the development of a resilient Khorog. The steering committee will act as the coordinating mechanism for AKDN teams supporting Government services, donors, beneficiaries, academia and line agencies of the National Government in Khorog.
AKAH works in close partnership with the Government of Tajikistan and non-governmental agencies to achieve its goals and objectives. Working in close coordination with relevant government agencies and development partners such as the Government of Switzerland, AKAH has developed and set up an Open Data Platform to facilitate sharing of geo-spatial data related to hazards and vulnerability and exposure to hazards between key line ministries and departments. The platform is intended to support evidence-based decision making in disaster risk reduction (DRR) and land use and development planning. The system is set up to provide simple analytical functions and tools that will help users answer specific questions based on the context and situation on the ground, to enable decision making and implementation. AKAH Tajikistan (AKAHT) is looking for a qualified consultant or consultancy firm with experience in web application development to create the web development tools required to enhance the Open Data Platform.
