Project Description

According to bank documents, the project objective is to enhance road access in selected rural areas in support of livelihoods of local communities and to provide immediate response to an eligible crisis or emergency as needed.

The IFRDP will continue to have the same five components. Component 1: Rehabilitation and Maintenance of Feeder Roads and Component 4: Capacity Building and Project Administration will be scaled up to incorporate new activities as part of the proposed Additional Financing. No changes will be introduced to other components. The project will be reimbursed out of the Additional Financing in the amount of USD35 million for Component 5: Contingent Emergency Response, that has been triggered immediately following the declaration of emergency by the GoM. This amount will be replenished to Component 1, from where it was reallocated. The increased scope of the project and the proposed restructuring will be reflected in the project components as described in the following paragraphs.

Component 1 Rehabilitation and Maintenance of Feeder Roads (Total cost: US$125 million; IDA: US$105 million). The nature of civil works/ interventions envisaged under this sub-component will not change from the originally designed works under Component 1 of the parent project. The only change is the expansion of the geographic coverage of the project. The parent project was limited to two provinces of Zambezia and Nampula. With the proposed AF, the financing under this component will be extended to include rehabilitation and maintenance works, as well as design studies and supervision activities in four additional provinces that were affected by cyclones Idai and Kenneth: Sofala, Manica, Tete, and Cabo Delgado.

Component 4: Capacity Building and Project Administration (Total cost: US$5 million; IDA US$5 million). This component will be scaled up to include additional activities related to climate resilient designs, additional resources for GBV consultant coverage in additional four provinces. This component
will also finance capacity building to strengthen the ability of ANE central and provincial offices to ensure supervision, monitoring, and contract administration.
