Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Mekong River started to rise in early August 2011, with water levels rising significantly when Typhoons Nesat and Nalgae in late September and early October brought heavy rain. 18 out of 24 provinces and municipalities have subsequently been inundated and over 1.5 million people affected. The damage from the 2011 flooding is expected to exceed that of floods in 1996 and 2000, both in terms of loss of life and impacts on infrastructure and agricultural crops, largely because the water rose and receded three times.
Impact Successful implementation of the proposed Advance Actions for the Flood Damage Emergency Reconstruction Project (FDERP)

2. Supporting a follow-up mechanism to finalize early batches of sub-projects ready for tender.

3. Supporting establishment of sound fiduciary arrangements.

4. Establishment of robust social and safeguards measures.

Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

The TA is on good track. However, the input of the national procurement consultant is still needed to help the EA/IA to prepare the procurement related works for stage 3 subprojects under the Loan 2852/Grant 0285-CAM: Flood Damage Emergency Reconstruction Project. Therefore, the TA closing date was extended from 31 December 2012 to 30 June 2013. Contract variation was made to extend the consultant's contract till 28 June 2013 with additional inputs of 47 working days.

The TA has been completed and the TA account is in the process of closure, awaiting certification from consultants. A TCR will be circulated in Q1 of 2014.
