Project Description
According to WB website, the objectives of the Strengthening Critical Infrastructure Against Natural Hazards Project for Tajikistan are to strengthen the recipient's disaster risk management capacities, enhance the resilience of its critical infrastructure against natural hazards, and improve its capacity to respond to disasters. There are four components to the project: Component 1: Strengthening disaster risk management capacity. This component is intended to strengthen the GoT’s capacity for DRM through selected activities that focus on disaster risk identification, disaster preparedness, and financial protection against disasters. It will be implemented in coordination with UNDP, which has been continuously strengthening the capacities of the CoESCD at the national and regional levels, while building regional mechanisms for disaster risk management and mainstreaming disaster risk reduction into state policy at the national and subnational levels. Component 2: Making critical infrastructure resilient against natural hazards. This component will finance capital works and contingency planning (for example, equipment for emergency situations) for the transportation network in GBAO, which suffered the most significant damage in July 2015, as well as the flood protection infrastructure that has repeatedly been damaged in the Khatlon Oblast. Component 3: Contingent emergency response component. The objective of this component is to enhance Tajikistan’s capacity to respond to disasters. An emergency eligible for financing is an event that has caused, or is likely imminently to cause, a major adverse economic and/or social impact to the Borrower, associated with a disaster. Component 4: Project management
