The Project is to: (i) directly reduce poverty of the marginalized and remote maritime and river-based communities by eliminating the constraints to delivery of affordable transport systems and by releasing the potential of community water transport through reinforcing the linkages between transport and poverty reduction, and (ii) support implementation of effective sector governance through establishment of the NMSA. The Project scope includes (i) establishing a Community Water Transport Fund (CWTF) that finances the required water transport subsidy; (ii) restoring water transport infrastructure; (iii) improving small-craft safety; (iv) maximizing utilization of water transport through community support services; (v) implementing maritime sector reforms and establishing the NMSA; and (vi) providing project management services.
