Project Description
From the World Bank: The objective of the Additional Financing for the Disaster Risk Management and Reconstruction Project for Haiti is to support the Recipient in improving disaster response capacity and enhancing the resiliency of critical transport infrastructure. The AF will significantly expand the scope and impact of the parent project by scaling up activities under all components of the project to support post-Hurricane Matthew recovery and reconstruction in the most affected departments of Haiti. Management underlined that funding from ongoing projects was mobilized to respond to immediate needs in the affected areas and providing funding in the form of grants for the above-mentioned package, consisting of four additional financing operations in the Transport and Disaster Risk Management (DRM) sectors, the Health Sector, the Water Sector, and the Agricultural Sector to be financed from the Crisis Response Window.
Investment Description
The Additional Financing (AF) will be financed by IDA’s Crisis Response Window (CRW), the first operation in a package of a US$100 million of support from the World Bank to help the Government of Haiti recover and rebuild after Hurricane Matthew, which struck the country on October 4, 2016. This component consists of a US$20 million grant from the World Bank's International Development Association. An estimated US$2.2 billion are needed for reconstruction and rehabilitation.
