Niger - Governance of Extractives for Local Development and COVID-19 Project (English)

The objective of the Governance of Extractives for Local Development and Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Project for Niger is to strengthen local governments’ capacity and extractive sector management for service delivery in the targeted regions. The Project has three components. 1. Strengthening Local Governments’ Capacities component will finance TA to strengthen systems and capacities for state deployment policies and incentivize through Performance Based Conditions (PBCs) the availability of public financing to transfer human and financial resources at local level. Sub-component 1.1: Technical assistance (TA) to strengthen the systems for resource deployment and Local Government (LG) performance will finance: (i) Human Resource Management (HRM) TA; (ii) Public Financial Management (PFM) TA; (iii) Local governance and risk monitoring systems. Sub-component 1.2: Performance Based Condition (PBCs) for effective deployment of public resources will incentivize, through PBCs, the mobilization of resources to implement public human and financial resources deployment at the local level in the targeted regions and sectors. 2. Improving extractive sector’s management component will finance TA to improve extractive sector’s management and investment attractiveness and its integration into the local economy. Sub-component 2.1 TA to improve extractive sector management will improve extractive sector management through better regulatory framework, geo data management and risk mitigation capacity, and to improve extractive sector integration in the local economy through enhanced local content and ASM capacity. Sub-component 2.2: PBCs for effective extractive sector oversight incentivize through PBCs the mobilization of resources to implement the effective oversight of the extractive sector, from ASM to Large Scale Mining (LSM) sites to improve social, environmental and fiscal compliance. 3. Project management component will support: (i) day to day management of the project; (ii) procurement and financial management; (iii) monitoring and evaluation (M and E); (iv) coordination of project activities; (v) communication; (vi) support of training and advisory services needed for the overall performance of the project; and (vii) leadership and change management to address collaboration and cooperation challenges, e.g. through coaching on Rapid Result approach within targeted ministries.
