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 project is making progress on delivering on targets in the Intermediate indicators, but they have not been fully met. The unavailability of the PAGDPs, which determine the type of activities that will be financed under the Project, limited progress in certain areas. Since the PAGDPs are now available, the targets have been confirmed, as shown in the Results Framework, and investments are aligned with achieving the targets.

  1. Component 1: Information and planning. The project has supported the preparation of five PAGDPs, that included a set of investments; some of these investments will be selected to be financed by PADAP. Technical assistance and analytical studies were focused on accompanying investments in priority. Important analytical work remains to be completed, through the proposed AF, including robust analyses of ecosystem service modelling that can inform landscape level decision making and payments for ecosystem services, climate-smart agriculture and climate vulnerability in landscapes, effective gender based approaches in agriculture and natural resource management, and fire management practices among others. The performance of this component is rated Satisfactory.

  2. Component 2—Investments and capacity building in the selected landscapes. Following the validation of the PAGDPs, significant progress has been made in the rehabilitation of irrigation schemes that are delivered, underway or under technical, environment and social feasibility study. Some achievements so far include 39 community forest management committees operational (39 percent of objective) and 12 irrigation schemes managed by local water user groups (48 percent of objective). The rehabilitation of a feeder road (32 kilometers, RIP117) is underway and an additional seven feeder roads have been identified from the PAGDP and the technical feasibility studies are ongoing. With regards to improving the adoption of improved agriculture practices, a collaboration with the Agriculture Development Fund (FDA) being signed to involve a partner at the local level to improve access to agriculture inputs and small equipment. The component performance is rated Satisfactory.

  3. Component 3—Project Management Coordination and M&E. Specific elements such as procurement and financial management are outlined below. The project has strengthened capacity at the regional level and there is effective coordination between the national and regional implementing units. With regards to monitoring and evaluation, there has been systematic tracking of both PDO level and intermediate level results indicators which point to progress towards the achievement of the PDO. Additional efforts are being made to track project implementation and the achievement of efficacy. Project Management and Monitoring and Evaluation are rated Satisfactory.

  4. Component 4—Contingency Emergency Response. As outlined above the emergency component was activated to enable to provide resources to assist with providing health related support, providing PPE, medicines and medical equipment of which there was a serious shortage. The support has enabled 100 percent of health facilities to have no stock-outs of PPE during the last 30 days and supported of the country in conducting 134,726 Covid-19 tests.
