Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The situation and the scale of damage are beyond the capacity of the government and its own agencies to meet the immediate expenses necessary to restore life-saving services to the affected population. The government currently lacks fiscal space, particularly due to a worsening fiscal deficit due to its economic stimulus and recovery efforts to respond to the financial, health, and social impacts of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic-related economics.

While the government has decided not to declare a national emergency, the government has appealed to the international community for assistance, and has specifically addressed ADB on 27 October 2020 seeking financial support to meet the immediate needs of 43.5 million for the disaster affected persons.

The UNRC has identified several immediate needs, including (i) food, agriculture and livelihoods (with severe loss of food stocks, cattle, poultry and agricultural land), (ii) water, sanitation and hygiene, (iii) health and nutrition, (iv) protection and gender, (v) shelter, and (vi) and education (362 schools have been damaged, 2,747 schools closed, and 1.2 million students experiencing interrupted learning)
