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.
From the World Bank: The development objective of the Sustainable Rural Small Town Water Supply and Sanitation Project for Haiti are to: (i) increase access to improved water supply and sanitation in targeted rural areas and small towns in zones affected by cholera; (ii) strengthen the Recipient’s water and sanitation service delivery mechanism at the concentrated level; and (iii) improve the Recipient’s capacity to respond promptly and effectively to an Eligible Emergency. The proposed additional financing (AF) contributes to the achievement of the World Bank Group’s twin goals of ending extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity by increasing access to basic services in the poorest rural areas of Haiti, particularly for communities affected by Hurricane Matthew. The proposed additional financing would scale up the Project’s development impact by expanding the scope and financing of activities under each of the three components by: (i) financing small repairs to bring water supply systems back into operation; and (ii) rehabilitating water supply systems in rural areas and small towns affected by Hurricane Matthew. The level II restructuring will entail: (i) reallocating grant proceeds between disbursements categories to align the respective disbursement and outstanding commitment amounts for each category; (ii) updating the Results Framework to include additional project beneficiaries resulting from the activities to be financed under this AF; and (iii) amending the Project Financing Agreement to include the financing of resettlement compensation.
