Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Electricity supply restored and normal education services resumed at pre-Cyclone Ian levels for the people of Ha'apai
Progress Toward Outcome Progress has been slow due to a number of circumstances. Capacity of MFNP and MoI been over stretched and focus has been on the reconstruction of housing, financed by the WB. This pushed back the recruitment of the international and national archtiects, which together with the election and Christmas period delayed implementation activities considerably. An ADB mission was fielded during first 2 weeks of Februry together with the international architect. Full scope of primary schools reconstruction work has been completed option for accelerated implementation are being exploered while the drawing are being completed by the architect.
