Project Description
The development objective of the Infrastructure and Institutions Emergency Recovery Project for Haiti is to support Haiti in its sustainable recovery efforts from the effects of the Emergency, through selected interventions aiming to rebuild key institutions and infrastructure. The second additional grant will finance new activities aimed at supporting governance and public financial management, which is a critical need in the context of the current emergency, as well as complete ongoing road rehabilitation works. The resources will also cover the financing gap due to the depreciation of the special drawing right allocation. This additional financing will also support the rehabilitation of the road between Cap Haitian and Labadie under component two of the parent project. This project is rated "A" for environmental and social concerns related to waste and debris management, air pollution control issues from debris processing, worker safety issues, and issues related to erosion control.
Investment Description
This project will provide a grant from the International Development Association for an additional US$2.8 million to support the Infrastructure and Institutions Emergency Recovery Project for Haiti. The additional financing (AF) will also involve a level two project restructuring, which will include: (i) an extension of the closing date of the project by 12 months, from December 31, 2016 to December 31, 2017, to allow for the completion of additional activities deriving from the recently adopted reform action plan. (ii) dropping the Électricité d'Haïti (power utility) financial statements audit (now covered by the International Development Association (IDA) - financed Rebuilding Energy Infrastructure and Access Project), the backup of the Central Bank payment system network and the civil service census; these freed resources will remain to cover new activities stemming from the PFMRAP and the public investment management action plan; (iii) dropping the rehabilitation of aviation safety equipment, works for the rehabilitation of the road between Milot and Cap Haïtien, and mineral extraction, all under component two, due to shifting government priorities and use of domestic resources for these activities.
