Project Description

According to bank documents, the project objective is to strengthen the capacity of the Government of Mozambique to prepare for and respond to disasters and increase the resilience of key public infrastructure in risk-prone areas. The project has 4 pillars:

  1. Improving financial protection against disasters. This pillar will support the GoM to improve its financial protection against disasters through: (i) the capitalization and operationalization of the national Disaster Management Fund; and (ii) by enabling the placement of sovereign catastrophe insurance coverage for cyclones and/or drought with.
  2. Pillar 2: Strengthening National Capacity for Disaster Preparedness, Response and Recovery. The new DRM program stresses the need for improving access to accurate information and early warning for local communities, and capacity development for preparedness, response, and recovery planning. This pillar will support the GoM, particularly INGC, to improve capacity, systems, standards, and procedures for emergency management at the national and local levels.
  3. Pillar 3: Building Resilience in Public Investment. This pillar will support selected sector ministries to increase resilience of key public infrastructure in priority hazard-prone areas in Mozambique, which are often damaged, destroyed, or rendered temporally inoperable due to adverse hydro-meteorological events.
  4. Pillar 4: Technical Assistance. This pillar will be implemented under an IPF modality to help strengthen the fiduciary, socio-environmental, and institutional capacity of INGC and other government institutions involved in the implementation of the Program.
