Title: Request for Proposal (RFP) - Creation of Multimedia Content and Equipment Supply in Albania

On 26 November 2019, Albania was hit by its most deadly earthquake in the last 50 years. The earthquake measured 6.3 on the Richter scale and caused significant casualties and property damage, resulting in 51 deaths, over 1000 injured, and nearly 17,000 people displaced. As a result of the disaster, a total of 202,291 people were affected in the country, 47,263 directly, and 155,029 indirectly. It caused extensive damage in 11 municipalities, including the two most populous, urbanised and developed municipalities (Tirana and Durres). The worst affected municipalities were: Shijak, Durres, Kruja, Tirana, Kamza, Kavaja, Kurbin, and Lezha.

The Government of Albania requested support from the European Union, the United Nations, and the World Bank to undertake a full and comprehensive Post-Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) to identify the damage, losses, and recovery needs arising from the earthquake. The tripartite partners provided financial and technical support to conduct the assessment in addition to the resources the government made available. To measure and assess the economic damage, a Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) was conducted, estimating the total economic losses at nearly EUR 1Billion.

The PDNA documented the destruction of public and private infrastructure. Of particular concern was the destruction of cultural heritage monuments and property, as 53 cultural heritage properties were significantly damaged by the earthquake. UNOPS, through ECR VIEMCO, is partnering with the Government of Albania and the European Union, to facilitate the post-earthquake revitalization and upgrade of economic and tourism infrastructure of a large number of key cultural heritage sites, museums, and cultural hubs.

The overall aim of the project will be to assist Albania with economic development and recovery with a focus on tourism development with cultural heritage as its key component. This project seeks to remediate the effect of the earthquake on Albania’s cultural heritage through the rehabilitation of monuments, as well as contribute to Albania’s socio-economic recovery through the construction and upgrade of these sites. It will be important also to support improvements in the capacity of institutions responsible for the management of these cultural monuments and sites to better accommodate tourism.
