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 objective is to restore access to critical urban services and strengthen resilience to shocks in selected cities within the Republic of Yemen.

The project has three components:

  1. Component 1: Service Restoration (US$105 million under the AF, new total: US$145 million). Following the same design as the parent project, the AF will scale up preparation and implementation of infrastructure investments through the ABA, which is an integrated and spatially targeted multisectoral approach to implementation in strong cooperation with local partners, which has proved highly successful, providing tangible improvements to people’s everyday lives. A tentative first-year investment pipeline has already been prepared, based on the technical and sustainability criteria of YIUSEP II32. New city level knowledge of climate risks is also helping to shape sub-project selection and investment locations. Furthermore, as underthe parent project, the final list of sub-projects will be informed by a bottom-up citizen engagement process with equal male and female representation.

    1. Sub-Component 1.1: Tertiary Municipal Services and Solid Waste Management.

    2. Sub-Component 1.2: Urban Water and Sanitation 

    3. Sub-Component 1.3: Urban Roads

    4. Sub-component 1.4: Energy for Critical Services

  2. Component 2: Implementation Support and Capacity Development (US$15 million under the AF, new total: US$25 million). Thissub-component will continue to support the same elements as under the parent project. Nevertheless, the AF is expected to have a greater focus on capacity building activities, with further expansion of support to the private sector.

    1. Sub-Component 2.1 Project Implementation and Management Support

    2. Sub-Component 2.2: Enhanced Capacity Building

    3. Sub-Component 2.3: Third Party Monitoring (TPM)

  3. The Contingent Emergency Response Component (CERC) (component 3) (US$0 under the AF, new total US$ 0) will allow for emergency response when an eligible disaster arises.
