Project Description

According to the World Bank, the objectives of the Rural Accessibility and Resilience Project for Haiti are to increase all-weather road access in selected sub-regions, and improve the resilience of selected segments of the road network.

The project has five components:

  1. Enhancing rural connectivity component will improve all-weather road access to essential services (i.e. obstetrical and emergency health facilities) and markets for the targeted population and build resilience to climate events, primarily in the South, South-East and Nippes departments.
  2. Improving resilience of transport connecting infrastructure component will strengthen resilience to climate change and extreme weather events on the primary and secondary road network, by protecting essential/critical points and preventing interruptions in the flow of individuals and goods.
  3. Promoting sustainable mobility development component will strengthen the institutional capacity of the Ministry of Public Works, Transportation, and Communications (MTPTC), through technical assistance, training, and the provision of goods.
  4. Contingent emergency response component will provide immediate response to an eligible emergency, as needed. Such components, which include triggers and conditions for the use of funds, are included in most investment projects in Haiti, in keeping with the recommendations of the 2011 World Development Report (WDR) on Conflict, Security and Development, and with Bank’s operational experience in Haiti when responding to natural catastrophic events.
  5. Project management component will support the coordination, implementation, management and supervision of the project.

The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing ipanel@worldbank.org.
