Project Description

The proposed additional loan is intended to help finance the costs associated with scaled-up activities to enhance the impact of a well-performing project. The major changes being proposed include: (i) simplification of the Project Development Objective and streamlining of indicators; (ii) the rehabilitation of an additional 23 dams that were identified at the time of appraisal but not included due to lack of available financing; (iii) introduction of a framework approach for screening and prioritization of the portfolio of dams under the Ministry of Public Works and Housing to create a platform that will allow for potential rehabilitation of additional dams during implementation; (iv) updating of the environmental and social management framework to provide a more comprehensive set of tools to support the portfolio approach, including an Indigenous Peoples Policy Framework, Resettlement Policy Framework, Natural Habitats and Pest Management; and (v) provisions for innovative measures to improve sediment management and
land-care practices.

The activities to be supported with additional financing are expected to result in enhanced outcomes that will contribute to improved dam safety. An Implementation Completion and Results Report has been completed for the parent project given that the additional financing and extension will extend beyond 10 years. Given the high relevance of the PDO, the substantial relevance of the design, the moderate efficacy to date and the planned activities throughout the final year of implementation, the project has been assessed as moderately satisfactory. A number of key lessons related to assessment of dam safety risks, monitoring and evaluation, sedimentation management and the overall quality of supervision have been incorporated into the design and restructuring of the additional financing.
