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 development objective of the First Productivity and Transparency Support Credit Project for Sierra Leone is to estimate the damages and losses related to the landslide and flooding and to make preliminary estimations of the recovery needs. The WBG, with funding from the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), is also supporting the country to strengthen its capacity for disaster management. An on-going project9 supports GoSL to strengthen its policies and programs on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) through mainstreaming activities related to the country’s climate resilience and disaster risk mitigation priorities. The project aims to: (i) strengthen institutional capacity and consensus building for DRR, including synchronization of programs towards DRR preparedness and responsiveness; (ii) enhance DRR programs through development of tools (e.g. flood hazard identification; vulnerability analysis) for disaster preparedness that encourage community participation, including affected households; and (iii) build the knowledge base for disaster risk management (DRM).The Productivity and Transparency Support Credit (PTSC) series supports reforms to increase productivity and improve transparency. The aim of the series is to contribute to the Government’s objective of achieving sustainable and inclusive economic development through: (i) increasing productivity in selected economic sectors and (ii) improving transparency and accountability in selected government decision making processes. The program covers six policy areas, namely: agriculture and land, fisheries, energy, education, procurement, and asset disclosure. Financing provided through the operations supports the maintenance of adequate fiscal framework and helps to absorb shocks without impeding the provision of basic public services.
