Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to bank documents, the project objective is to strengthen public service delivery capacity of local governments, increase access to climate-resilient urban infrastructure and services, and to provide immediate and effective response to an eligible crisis or emergency in selected areas.

Component 1: Urban Infrastructure and Services (US$108 million equivalent, of which IDA US$37 million and SMPF US$71 million). This component supports the preparation and implementation of all infrastructure investments in the four original target cities of Mogadishu, Garowe, Baidoa and Kismayo. An additional US$19 million will be added to this component, increasing the allocation from the
original US$89 million to US$108 million, to add the two new cities and to increase the budget allocation for the second tranche for the existing four cities. While priority investments will be determined in a participatory manner through further consultations with different community groups and local government, they would likely include urban roads, community (tertiary) roads, bridges, trunk drainage, side drainage, pedestrian walkways, and solar-powered streetlights among others.

Component 3: Project Management and Capacity Building (US$20.5 million equivalent, of which IDA US$10 million and SMPF US$10 million). To cover the costs of project implementation and management, particularly in the two new cities of Dhusamareeb and Beledweyne, and to cover the additional costs for the PCU at the federal level to oversee the two new cities, an additional US$2.5 million will be allocated from the AF to Component 3: Project Management and Capacity Building. Allocation for Component 3: Project Management and Learning will increase from US$18 million to US$20.5 million.

Component 4: Contingent Emergency Response (US$20 million equivalent from IDA). This component will finance the CERC activities which are expected to be approved by May 2022.If approved,
the CERC will provide drought response activities in terms of HLP and basic service provision (WASH and/or health) in the three cities of Mogadishu, Baidoa and Garowe that are already receiving a large inflow of IDPs triggered by the drought. The implementation of activities will be led by IOM in partnership with its Danwadaag Consortium partners. IOM will sign an Output Agreement with the PCU and coordinate closely to the PCU and the relevant PIUs. The activities would be implemented in coordination with the Federal Member State (FMS), other Bank operations responding to the drought, existing drought coordination mechanisms, and strategic partnerships such as the EU, FCDO, and USAID, to maximize impact.
