Project Description

According to bank documents, the project objective is to improve access to basic services and to strengthen the service delivery capacity of local institutions in selected areas. The project has three components:

  1. Local Service Delivery (US$43 million). This component will support the construction and rehabilitation of community infrastructure in selected areas.
    Eligible investments include water supply and sanitation, community roads, health and education facilities, and public market facilities, and public goods that proved to have high demand under LGSDP.
  2. Local Institution Strengthening (US$12 million). This component will support activities related to: (i) community mobilization and participatory planning which includes local conflict mitigation training; (ii) support for community institutions on infrastructure construction/rehabilitation/monitoring and local conflict mitigation; and (iii) diagnostic of the functionality of and technical assistance for local governments.

  3. Project Management and Learning (US$10 million). This component will support: (i) project management including technical planning, financial management, procurement, social and environment risk management, and communications; (ii) project monitoring which includes geoenabled monitoring system, social audit, and beneficiary feedback/grievance redress mechanism; (iii) continuous data collection on beneficiary impacts and local conflict dynamics; and (iv) just-in-time studies as and when needs arise. Such studies may include operation and maintenance (O&M) study, technical assessment of the subprojects, gender-based violence (GBV) assessment etc.
  4. Contingency Emergency Response (US$0 million). A contingency emergency response component (CERC) will initially have no budget allocation but would allow for rapid reallocation of project funds in the event of natural crisis during the implementation of the project. This will allow the proposed project to remain flexible and better adapt to emergencies.
