Project Description

According to bank documents, the objective of the Project is to improve local government capacity in managing their public financial resources to provide basic services and mitigate local conflicts.

The project has four components:

  1. Financing Decentralization (US$30.0 million). The aim of this component is to strengthen the transfers of resources to Local Governments (LGs) for public investment.
  2. Building institutions and capacity for inclusive and accountable local governance (US$7.0 million). The objective of the component is to support the implementation of the decentralization process by building the institutions financing LGs and ensuring citizen engagement in local governance. The component will provide technical
    assistance to build capacities at national, regional and local levels, support the operationalization of the FNDL and ANAFIC, and strengthen participatory mechanisms at LGs level. Decentralization reforms, including fiscal transfers to LGs, will also be supported by the Bank through its policy dialogue with the GoG in the context of budget support.
  3. Project Coordination and Management (US$3.0 million). The project will be managed by a Project Implementation Unit (PIU), embedded within ANAFIC.
  4. Contingent Emergency Response Component (CERC) (US$0.0). This zero-budget sub-component establishes a disaster contingency fund that could be triggered in the event of a natural disaster through formal declaration of a national emergency, or upon a formal request from GoG. In such a case, funds from the unallocated
    expenditure category or from other project components could be re-allocated to finance emergency response expenditures to meet emergency needs. In order to ensure the proper implementation of this component, the Borrower shall prepare and furnish to IDA an operatio
