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 bank documents, the original objective is to provide temporary employment to vulnerable people throughout the entire territory of the country. The current objective is to provide temporary employment to vulnerable people and to facilitate access to basic services throughout the entire territory of the country, and to provide a response in the case of an eligible crisis or emergency.

The project has five components:

  1. Local Governance (approximately US$14.8). This component will continue to finance all the activities included in Component 1 – Local Governance of the parent Project, but will expand the scope of the rapid assessments to determine the type of community works and community infrastructures that can be undertaken in each district.
  2. Public Infrastructure (approximately US$55.8). This component will continue to finance maintenance works done under the parent Project, but will also finance community works, which will go beyond road maintenance, while continuing to rely on works that can be performed by unskilled labor and require labor-intensive methods(e.g. building school benches).
  3. Socio-economic Integration (approximately US$16.8). The number of paid worked days will be tripled: 120,000 contracts of 40 working days each. 4,800 brigades of 25 beneficiaries across the country will be set up, managed, and paid for performing community works.
  4. Project management (US$9.60). While this component will remain unchanged, the M&E activities will be improved through the digitization and geocoding of the different M&E tools. It will allow for the remote supervision of the Project, as well as greater options for information-sharing and coordinated planning with partners.
  5. Contingency Emergency Response Component (CERC). This zero-fund component will allow the Government to quickly mobilize funds in the event of an emergency that would require immediate recovery and reconstruction needs, which cannot be covered under the LONDO+; for instance, an epidemic outbreak, a new IDP crisis or a climate-related shocks such as flooding or drought.
