The project will be implemented in two phases. Phase 1 involves (i) the finalization of design and costing, (ii) the preparation of bidding documents for the civil works contract, and (iii) community consultation to ensure that community feedback is factored into the final design and costing. Phase 2 consists of (i) physically rehabilitating the project schools, and (ii) strengthening the capacity of MOET and communities for build-back-better execution, safer construction, disaster risk reduction and preparedness, and maintenance planning.
The impact will be accelerated social recovery in Vanuatu's cyclone-affected provinces. The outcome will be critical social services resumed with disaster-resilient infrastructure. The project has two outputs: (i) schools in Tafea Province are rebuilt and/or upgraded, and (ii) the capacity of communities and MOET management for disaster risk reduction and disaster preparedness is strengthened. The recovery work is to be completed within 24 months.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
