Annex 6. Body Management
Plan for achieving objective
Current Status and Actions Underway
Train & deploy sufficient safe burial teams
across the country to conduct safe
collection and burial.
Ensure adequate supplies and storage
facilities for body management teams
through dedicated warehouse.
Develop sufficient crematorium and burial
capacity
Current status: 20 IFRC teams ready to deploy + 6 GC teams in Monts; 51 GC teams across
other counties. 8-12 Montserrado teams currently being used and doing training refresh.
Plan for expansion: IFRC/GC able to quickly train additional 10 -15 in Monts.
98% body pickups within 24 hours.
Have had problem with body bags /other ad hoc supplies and the ordering/collection
system. 19th warehouses still being made operational. Inventory tracking and assistance
required.
Cemetery plan underway however still awaiting MoJ verification of deed ownership. Draft
social mobilisation/messages have been finalised for agreement.
Undertake actions (e.g. testing,
identification etc) to ensure all collections
and burials are happening safely.
Swabs being collected by IFRC teams but feedback is a problem. CDC have developed draft
guidance but the final feedback and comms strategy needs to be agreed. GC teams being
trained in swab testing and will support in all counties.

Annex 10: WASH for Ebola
Humanitarian Response

Two Sludge trucks from US-DART team will be handed over to UNICEF and Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) this week to start transporting liquid
sludge being overflowed in Septic tanks in two ETUs to the Fiamah (Monrovia) waste water treatment plant to store and treat infectious liquid waste. These
septic tanks were emptied and temporarily stored in UNICEF provided poly tanks. With the funding assistance of USAID, UNICEF will get into an operational
plan with Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) to continue emptying and transporting liquid infectious waste from ETUs. UNICEF, in consultation
with infection prevention and control (IPC) experts from WHO and ICRC, is organizing a practical training session on handling of Waste by Operators and
Drivers of sludge trucks of LWSC Subnational coordination has to be reinforced, and partners working in the EVD response should engage with the WASH
cluster coordinators at county level.

The WASH Cluster Coordination group conducted a day long capacity building workshop on Integrated WASH assessment and monitoring for County level
WASH Coordinators and other technical staff of MOPW. The main objective of the workshop was “Technical and coordination capacity development of
WASH team at sub-national level in support to Ebola response using RITE (Rapid Isolation and Treatment of Ebola) approach”. A total of 35 participants
attended including MOH environmental health staff and few NGO staff. Major focus of this workshop was on assessment and monitoring of WASH facilities,
before and after installation, by MOPW county technical teams with available INGOs support. It was facilitated by MOPW Assistant Minister, National Cluster
Coordinator, MOPW WASH Engineer, Public Health Engineer from OXFAM, UNICEF Cluster Coordinator and two UNICEF WASH specialists. WASH Cluster
organized this workshop with financial, logistical and technical support of UNICEF Liberia.

WASH Cluster members have agreed to form five technical working groups (TWGs) in its last weekly meeting with a focal person as chair with an alternative
to steer working group work and to report their activities to the Cluster meeting. The TWGs are: ETU/CCC; waste management; Integrated WASH
assessment, Hygiene promotion and social mobilization and sub-national coordinator. Each TWGs will draft its major tasks in relation to Ebola response.

The Ministry of Public Works with support from WASH cluster members at county level have begun monitoring the distribution of hygiene promotion kits
and their use at household levels. One of the Ebola hard hit communities of Telbormai in Voinjama was monitored during the last week. The first subnational level coordination meeting for the WASH Ebola Away Response was also initiated during this period

Out of 13 incinerators brought in the country 12 were installed. ICRC is leading the training and technical support for the assembly of these 13 incinerators
to be used for bio-med waste at the ETUs in and around Monrovia. UNOPS and WHO organized training for operators from Government counterpart and
NGOs who have taken operational responsibility.

WHO, MOHSW, IMC, IOM and MSF are operating and maintaining WASH facilities in ETU for 750 beds capacity in the country (Lofa, Bong, Montserrado,
Bomi, Nimba and Margibi counties). IMC with the support of Save The Children open a new ETU in Margibi, and IOM in Tumaburg with the support of
USAID/AFL.

The construction of the WASH system for additional ETUs in the country with 16 ETU’s under construction (beds) (Actors: UNICEF, WFP, WHO, AFL, WHH,
USAID and WB). These are being assessed by WASH cluster assessment teams to ensure fulfilling minimum WASH requirements with their technical advice
and recommendations. As of now 9 of these were assessed for WASH by the Cluster organized teams and schedules for the remaining are being worked out
with operating entities. The assessment teams of the cluster also assessed three CCCs in Margibi, Fishtown and in Lofa counties.

As part of UNICEF’s continued support to rehabilitation of the water supply system and sanitation facilities in ETUs, UNICEF provided 12 units of poly tanks
and 3 submersible pumps to the unity Centre ETU to pump out waste water from the overflowing tank with proper drainage.

Rehabilitation and upgrade of the water supply system and sanitation facilities in ELWA-2 ETU is almost halfway to complete. The work involves construction
of 2 toilets, 2 showers and a storm water drainage system and rehabilitation of pipelines for water supply.

FAO Rapid Food Security Assessment (Nov 13), for most affected counties: Bomi, Bong, Lofa, Margibi,and Nimba:
• Rice harvest yield reduction expected. decrease of 10 -15% , and up to 25% in most affected districts (because of
limited markets not production problems)
• Limited supply of food to markets, main traders not coming, household income reduced, lack cash to buy food.
Current needs /
• Continued food and livelihoods assistance for people affected by EVD;
challenges
• Limited inclusion of local cassava products (gari) in food aid support to ebola affected patients and hhs
• Need to revitalise Village Savings and Loans Associations (mostly Women) through injection of cash
• Need Balance between longer-term food/economic security interventions and ebola-related food actions

Annex 14. Development Projects
What is the impact of ebola on major development projects? Which major projects have been critically impacted?
Most of the crucial development projects have stalled – potential major impact and losing dry season. Contractors and
supervising engineers have pulled out. Required financing from GoL budget is at risk due to forecast Budget shortfall.
Current status
Actions Required & by whom?
RIA runway: project delayed (6 months?) as not confident
quality companies will tender for the contract now
Mount Coffee: on-site construction works suspended until
Ebola situation under control; manufacturing, procurement,
and other project management activities continue as planned
HFO (JICA, WB, GoL): all stalled no work ongoing. Risk of 1 year
delay
Red light to Gbarnga road: Contractors have envoked force
majeure. Risk of loss of dry season and one year delay
Fish Town to Harper: Progress has been ongoing to enable
works to begin without major further delay
Feasibility study for Ganta – Tappita: cannot tender for
consultant as quality companies will not bid in current
circumstances
Agriculture: ?
Need to identify criteria required for contractors,
consultants to return to sites.
Some indicators include:
- lifting of the State of Emergency,
- resumption of service of more than one
international airline
- positive assessment of healthcare risks (e.g. an
acceptable hospital is Ebola free and able to
treat non-Ebola emergencies)
- reduction of the new cases rate to an acceptable
percentage of peak (if not 0 new cases),
Updated: Dec. 11, 2014
Annex 15. Immediate economic issues
What is the status of most critical impacts on the economy from the ebola crisis (e.g. concession operations,
investment, cross-border trade, government finances etc)
-
Current growth rate projects are down to 1% (initial estimate of 8.7% at the start of the year)
17 percent increase in prices of essential commodities on year on year basis.
Tax revenues expected to contract by 19%
Hardest hit relating to the labor market: agriculture, fisheries, mining
Montserrado, Grand Kru, Sinoe, and Maryland are the most economically impacted counties according to UNMIL data.
There is a disproportionate number of women affected by the loss of livelihoods according to Liberia’s Association of
Marketers
- Overall, Ebola is driving communities into higher levels of poverty
Specific Objectives to mitigate impact
The Ebola Private Sector Management Group (EPMSG) are
developing a private sector engagement plan that will identify their
strengths and abilities as implementing partners for the Ministry of
Finance and Development Planning’s Economic Stabilization and
Recovery Plan.
Current Status and Actions Required & by whom?
Ministry of Finance and Development Planning are consolidating the
Economic Stabilisation and Recovery Plan into a project by project
synopsis and lining up potential partners.
Six NGOs and UN agencies have initiated a national social-safety net
programme that is led by the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social
Protection. Initial ideas and geographic coverage have been proposed
and the Ministry and UNDP (co-chair) will evolve the plan. There is
strong donor interest.
Final mapping of initial proposals needs to be completed to provide an
initial picture of social safety net coverage for Liberia in 2015 and how
it links into re-investment and livelihoods opportunities for
sustainability.
The World Bank has confirmed the its interest in supporting social
safety net programmes. USAID has also shown significant interest.
Both agencies are keeping in close contact with the Ministry and
UNDP as the co-chair of the Technical Working Group on Social Safety
Net Cash Transfers.
The banking infrastructure and mechanisms for making payments is
under stress. UNDP is working with the banks and mobile money
networks to help them function better in areas outside Monrovia.
Longer-term interventions will be needed to overcome the problems
that are faced, but some quick fixes may be possible. UNDP is
engaged with USAID, NetHope and others that have had this issue on
the radar for some years.

Annex 17A. ETU Threat Assessment
Violence targeting ETU/CCC is extremely low. Most agitation comes when family
members are seeking information about their loved one in the facility and the
personnel fail to provide an update. As long as facilities are briefing the family
members on the condition of their family member, tensions should remain low.
•
Recent demand for dignified burial for victims. Many in the community have
expressed concern over cremating the remains and not having a place to go, nor
grieve. Reports of affluent members of the community successfully retrieving their
loved ones and taking their remains from the facilities to a burial site.
•
Petty crimes and theft are expected around the facilities like any other location.
Update: 5/12
