The development objective is to strengthen the institutional capacity to administer the electricity social tariff scheme and improve its effectiveness in the Buenos Aires Province. This Project would support the Province of Buenos Aires’ authorities with the design, implementation, and financing of social tariff for electricity. The Project will focus on improving the effectiveness of this program through better identification of beneficiaries and monitoring, and strengthening the administration capacity to handle the transition in the short term; while supporting institutional capacities to address ST reforms in medium term.
The proposed lending instrument is a four-year investment project financing loan (IPF) that would finance ST under a disbursement link indicators (DLIs) component, and that would include a technical assistance component that would disburse under regular procurement methods.
