According to bank documents, the objectives of this operation are: (i) to improve access to services for both the population and the private sector in selected areas; and (ii) to improve the capacity of local government in the areas of planning, management, and financial management.
The project will comprise four components:
Resilient infrastructure investment and service delivery in select towns and adjacent territories (42 million USD): This component aims to support the development of communal or inter-municipal economic and basic infrastructures and services in selected areas (either intermediary cities or newly created towns or adjacent territories) to increase access to services and better manage future urban growth. Infrastructure of interest could consist of urban roads, urban drainage systems, electricity lines, solid or liquid waste management infrastructure, public facilities and space for youth, regional or local markets, etc. All infrastructure will be designed with climate change considerations, and many of the proposed types of infrastructure will directly support climate resilience.
Technical support towards improved planning and local management (3 million USD). This component aims at providing technical support to local actors, in particular the municipal institutions, as well as the regional councils and other relevant local institutions (associations, private sector representation, etc.), to improve their
capacity to prepare and implement development plans that will yield higher impacts in access to services, economic development and poverty reduction.
Project management (5 million USD). This component will support the implementation of all project activities in accordance with the Bank’s policies and guidelines in the area of coordination, supervision, financial management, procurement, audits, safeguards, monitoring and evaluation.
