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.

According to WB documents, the development objective of the project is to strengthen Zambia's institutional framework for climate resilience and improve the adaptive capacity of vulnerable communities in the Barotse sub-basin. The project involves three components:

1. Strategic National Program Support
2. Support to Participatory Adaptation, through strengthening of the adaptive capacity of vulnerable rural communities in the Barotse sub-basin.
3. Pilot Participatory Adaptation, through the funding of actual participatory adaptation investments in the Barotse sub-basin

The Additional Financing (AF) will be accompanied by a restructuring of the project which will include the following changes: extension of the closing date of the project by 36 months from 2019 to 2022 to allow sufficient time to implement the new activities; amendment of the project Results Framework to add new indicators for monitoring the new activities and adjustment of the existing indicator targets to capture the increase in project beneficiaries; changes to disbursement categories which will be combined under one to avoid the need for future restructuring for disbursement category overruns; addition of the Zambia Metrological Agency as an additional implementing agency with the Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit.
