Benin - Second Decentralized City Management Project : restructuring : Main report (English)

The project objective of the Second Decentralized City Management Project is to increase access to infrastructure and basic services for residents of Benin's primary cities (Cotonou, Porto-Novo, and Parakou) and selected secondary cities (Abomey-Calavi, Lokossa, and Kandi). The overall project implementation is progressing well. As of May 20, 2010, 81 percent of the original credit and 39 percent of the additional financing credit had been disbursed. i) the rehabilitation (paving and drainage) of 23.3 kilometers out of 31.6 km of urban roads is completed and providing to over 224,000 residents better access to the city centers (67 percent of end of project target), and (ii) the construction of 9.5 km out of 14.8 kilometers of primary drainage network, protecting 73,000 residents from periodic flooding (64% of end of original project target). The committees are supporting the entrenchment of community participation in decision making in the project. The extension is necessary to enable the Borrower to complete works on the landfill at Porto Novo (Takon site) and all outstanding works on the Additional Financing Credit.
