Brazil - Recife Urban Upgrading Project (Inglês)

The Recife Urban Upgrading Project seeks to enhance urbanization, by improving in particular, the well being of the urban poor along the Beberibe River Basin, through a strengthened institutional capacity of public (state and local), and civic entities, able to plan for, deliver, and maintain basic shelter, and urban services for low-income people, in a sustainable manner. The first component focuses on infrastructure, and environmental subprojects that include the development of ecological parks along the Beberibe River, the rehabilitation of a historic structure for communal uses, as well as roads, drainage, and sewage improvements. A second component will finance those works associated with water distribution systems, mainly to improve the commercial operations of water delivery, which includes sector works, and, macro, and micro metering. The Beberibe low-income investments component will finance the urbanization of low-income settlements around the micro drainage basins, namely water supply, and sanitation improvements, household connections, secondary road improvements and related drainage, among others. The complementary urbanization actions component, will finance the design, and engineering of infrastructure investments; social outreach and community participation; environmental education, as well as studies on potential sites and services development, on future investments, and on a pilot micro-credit program for housing improvement, and small business development.
