We request $2.5mn from SPF in order to restore safety of CAR's hydropower plants and strengthen the security of electricity supply to the capital Bangui. The grant would cover emergency needs for: (1) the rehabilitation of hydropower facilities with emphasis on dam safety ($2 million) including (a) technical assistance to develop a dam safety plan and an Emergency Preparedness Plan (EPP) with emphasis on public awareness and training and (b) hydropower rehabilitation equipment purchase and installation; (2) rehabilitation of distribution network ($0.3 million); and (3) technical assistance to improve the corporate governance and the operational performance of the power sector ($0.2 million). These components would complement actions funded under the Bank's EPRP and AFD's power rehabilitation project, and scale up achievement of the same objectives.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE WORLD BANK
The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing email@example.com.
