According to bank documents, the project objective is to assist the Government in creating a favorable environment for the introduction of competition and private sector investment, and to promote the adoption of digital skills and services.
The project has four components:
Component 2: Digital transformation and skills – US$2M. This component aims to build on the evolving ICT market structure and the additional digital connectivity provided under Component 1 to promote digital transformation and skills development. It will seek to promote digital literacy capabilities, in order to increase digital inclusion and literacy, and to stimulate demand for digital solutions through support to the creation of a vibrant digital private ecosystem. The component will target two groups of interest: i) MSMEs, and ii) the general population, with a focus on women and young people.
Component 4: Contingent Emergency Response Component (CERC) – US$0. Since the global shock generated by the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become common practice for all WBG lending projects to incorporate a Contingent Emergency Response Component (CERC). This will have an initial zero value but may be financed during the course of the project to allow for an agile response to unforeseen emergencies. Adding the component in from the beginning, albeit with zero funding, provides for flexibility to respond to crises as they arise. These could include, for instance, humanitarian crises which require the provision of emergency communications services to replace facilities that have been damaged, or to facilitate emergency humanitarian payments using mobile money.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE WORLD BANK
The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing email@example.com. Information on how to file a complaint and a complaint request form are available at: https://www.inspectionpanel.org/how-to-file-complaint
