The Flood and Landslide Emergency Recovery Project responds to the priority sectors and geographic areas identified in the PDNA. First, the project will help to close the financing gap in the transport sector, which was the hardest-hit public sector. It will focus on the geographic areas that experienced the highest damages in the transport sector. Second, livelihood support through labor-intensive rehabilitation and maintenance of rural roads will help alleviate the suffering of the most-affected segments of society with both immediate and long-term benefits of income generation, capacity building, increased connectivity as well as business opportunities. Third, the project will support the recovery in the agricultural sector by financing a positive list of goods, including seeds and animal feed, through a contribution to the IDA IRM. The project areas of intervention were selected based on the following criteria: (i) the level of impact sustained as documented by the PDNA, (ii) the number of poor and vulnerable populations, and (iii) consideration of recovery interventions by development partners. The project interventions will focus on the States and Regions which experienced the highest per capita damages, including Chin, Rakhine, Ayeyarwady, Sagaing, Magway, Bago, and Yangon. In the preparation of the proposed project, the World Bank is closely cooperating with the ADB and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) in particular to avoid overlap and ensure investment synergies. The project consists of four components: (i) Resilient Rehabilitation of National Roads, (ii) Resilient Rehabilitation of Rural Roads and Livelihoods Support, (iii) Emergency Response, and (iv) Project Management and Knowledge Support.
