Bangladesh: Emergency Assistance Project – Additional Financing

Sovereign Project | 52174-002

ADB's additional financing is expected to fill the resource gap and to support the medium-term needs. The committed funding by other donor agencies is mostly towards the humanitarian supports; hence, the gaps in the infrastructure for medium-term needs remain wide. The proposed second phase of the project is expected to finance the infrastructure for medium-term needs mainly and complement the above World Bank's project. Moreover, the government has requested urgent support from ADB to meet the immediate medical needs and mitigate the impact of the outbreak either through a new program or by extending the scope of the second phase of the project.

Description ADB's additional financing is expected to fill the resource gap and to support the medium-term needs. The committed funding by other donor agencies is mostly towards the humanitarian supports; hence, the gaps in the infrastructure for medium-term needs remain wide. The proposed second phase of the project is expected to finance the infrastructure for medium-term needs mainly and complement the above World Bank's project. Moreover, the government has requested urgent support from ADB to meet the immediate medical needs and mitigate the impact of the outbreak either through a new program or by extending the scope of the second phase of the project. The request includes (i) establishing isolation centers; (ii) ensuring sufficient supply of personal protective equipment and medical goods; (iii) bolstering diagnostic capabilities; (iv) establishing or strengthening emergency operations centers; (v) training health workers in case detection and management; (vi) enhancing risk communication; (vii) expanding disease surveillance in communities and points of entry; (viii) improving clinical management and health care services; and (ix) strengthening infection management and control.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The fact-finding mission in 2018 prioritized medium-term needs such as pipeline water access, community bathing facilities, food distribution centers, cyclone shelters, road access to camp areas, surface water treatment plants, solar street lights, household lighting, drainage, waste management, and lightning arrestors. The first phase helps make camps more developed and safer, with clean drinking water, community bathing facilities, solar streetlights, cyclone shelters, food distribution centers, better roads, drainage, bridges, walkways, and hill retention. Women and vulnerable people have especially benefited immensely from ADB support. The first phase has helped gain high visibility of ADB among the development partners and stakeholders. However, the prioritized medium-term needs are not fully included in the first phase due to funding constraints.
