Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to bank documents, The program involves a comprehensive package of interventions for the next five years to improve infrastructure sector performance and bring it to a sustainable state. 

Results Area 1: Providing more inclusive access to electricity and transport infrastructure.

  1. In the electricity sector, the program aims to expand access to electricity for households, enterprises and public institutions, with a focus on rural and underserved areas.
  2. In the transport sector, the program aims to provide better road and other transport connectivity for rural and underserved areas of Madagascar.

Results Area 2: Enhancing the financial and fiscal sustainability of public delivery of electricity and transport services.

  1. In the electricity sector, the program will support the implementation of JIRAMA’s Financial Recovery Plan, which was prepared with the World Bank support and presented to the GoM in September 2019. The plan includes a fiscal roadmap for the GoM and an operational roadmap for JIRAMA with a broad range of measures to gradually improve the financial health of JIRAMA to become a financially self-sustainable and creditworthy off-taker.
  2. In the transport sector, the program will support the improvement of sector governance and enhance financial sustainability in the sector, specifically by implementing a robust road asset management, including systematic prioritization of investment, timely maintenance and strengthening axle road control regulations, and increasing and diversifying road-sector revenues (fuel levy and road user charges). Strengthening axle road regulations will contribute to not only preserving the road assets but also financial sustainability of Madarai, thereby improving financial sustainability in the transport sector as a whole.
  3. Cross-cutting, support implementation of improved fiscal planning and budgeting for infrastructure, enhancement and implementation of the PPP framework including procurement and management of contingent liabilities.

Results Area 3: Improving the environmental sustainability and safety in the electricity and transport sectors.

  1. In the electricity sector, the program will support reforms to facilitate and accelerate the implementation of PPP reforms for procurement of renewable energy power plants; the implementation of new framework and tools for generation expansion planning; and the expansion of deployment of solar PV for minigrids. 
  2. In the transport sector, the program will support the Government’s efforts to improve road safety through assisting the institutional reforms to establish a road safety authority and implement the road safety strategy. The program will also support the efforts to building more climate resilience in transport infrastructure, including design of climate resilient roads, and improving rail operations, which could also contribute to environmental sustainability and safety in the transport sector, through shifting heavy bulky freight traffic from roads to rail transport.
