The project will contribute to reversing the devastating impact of the earthquake and so revive economic activity and enable people to resume their livelihoods and return to normal life. This will be achieved primarily through rehabilitating and reconstructing damaged and destroyed infrastructure as quickly as possible, which will particularly assist the poor and other vulnerable people.
The project will have the following components:
(i) quick-disbursing, which will be used to finance only imports identified as necessary for an effective recovery program; (ii) project components, which will finance rehabilitation and reconstruction of the following sectors: (a) transport; (b) power and (c) health and education; and
(iii) implementation assistance component with subcomponents: legal assistance, governance and institutional building which will be used to address governance, legal and documentary issues arising from the earthquake's impact.
