Belize - Climate Resilient Infrastructure Project (English)

The objectives of the Climate Resilient Infrastructure Project for Belize are: (a) to enhance the resilience of road infrastructure against flood risk and impacts of climate change; and (b) to improve the borrower's capacity to respond promptly and effectively in an eligible crisis or emergency, as required. The project has four components. (1) Climate resilient infrastructure component will reduce physical vulnerability of critical infrastructure through the retrofitting and rehabilitation of existing infrastructure within the primary and secondary road network including associated drainage and flood mitigation systems in order to strengthen their resilience to natural hazards and the anticipated impacts of climate variability. (2) Technical assistance for improved climate resilience management component will strengthen the capacity of relevant technical line ministries, Ministry of Works and Transport (MoWT) and Ministry of Natural Resources and Agriculture (MNRA), to mainstream climate resilience considerations into core physical and investment planning and asset maintenance. The component will strengthen the capacity available to the MNRA and MoWT through targeted training, as well as equipment and knowledge acquisition. (3) Project management and implementation support component will support: (a) strengthening the project management unit and line ministries, through staffing, training, and operating costs; (b) preparation of project reports; (c) procurement and financial management; (d) coordination of participating line ministries; (e) compliance with social and environmental safeguards; (f) training of staff in project management and implementation technical support; (g) monitoring and evaluation of project progress and results; and (h) related activities to support efficient project management and implementation, through the provision of training, operating costs, and acquisition of goods. (4) Contingent emergency response component will provide support for immediate response to an eligible crisis or emergency, as needed.
