Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.
The objective of the Second Strengthening Agriculture Public Services Project for Haiti are to: (a) reinforce the capacity of the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Development to provide or facilitate access to services in the agricultural sector; (b) increase market access to small producers and food security in Selected Areas; and (c) provide financial assistance in the case of an Agriculture Sector Emergency. The Additional Financing will scale up the farmer subsidy scheme and support new activities in the area affected by Hurricane Matthew. The new activities will focus on rehabilitating irrigation and drainage, recapitalizing livestock and agricultural assets, and building resilience to extreme weather. The restructuring will involve the rewording of the PDO and its indicators to reflect the new potential outcomes, the triggering of OP/BP4.12 (Involuntary Resettlement), a reallocation between disbursement categories, and the extension of the closing date. This project also seeks to undertake a Level 1 restructuring that would include: (i) revision of the Project Development Objective (PDO) wording to reflect activities in the affected areas and an increase in scope of the Emergency Response Contingency (ERC); (ii) activation of the Involuntary Resettlement Policy (OP/BP 4.12) to anticipate the possibility of an involuntary resettlement in the affected areas; (iii) upgrading of the Results Framework to reflect adjusted outcomes and targets, and emerging good practices in climate resilience; (iv) extension of the original grant closing date to align it with the closing date of the Additional Financing; and (v) reallocation of proceeds between disbursement categories.
