Description The Integrated Flood Risk Management Sector Project (the project) will assist the government of the Republic of Philippines (the government) to reduce flood risks in six river basins (Apayao-Abulog and Abra in Luzon, Jalaur in Visayas, and Agus, Buayan-Malungon, and Tagum-Libuganon in Mindanao) by (i) improving flood risk management (FRM) planning through strengthening data acquisition and data management, and improving flood protection asset management; (ii) rehabilitating and constructing flood protection infrastructure; and (iii) raising community awareness, and preparing and implementing disaster (flood) risk reduction and management plans to reduce different groups' vulnerabilities.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The transaction technical assistance (TRTA) will help the government to prepare the ensuing project as well as develop a preliminary roadmap and a long term investment program for flood risk management (FRM). The TRTA will directly complement the technical assistance loan for IPIF. More specifically, the IPIF will directly support output 2 of the ensuing project by financing the preparation of (i) six FRM master plans of six target river basins; (ii) feasibility studies; (iii) detailed engineering design of priority infrastructure; (iv) procurement; and (v) social and environmental safeguard assessments. The TRTA will (i) prepare design of the project, particularly its outputs 1 and 3; (ii) support output 2 by reviewing technical soundness of the FRM master plans, feasibility studies, detailed engineering design of priority infrastructure and due diligence conducted under the IPIF, including the _Room for the River_ approach and nature-based solutions; and (iii) prepare a preliminary roadmap and investment program for FRM in the Philippines.
