Infrastructure & Institutions Emergency Recovery, Haiti
The development objective of the Infrastructure and Institutions Emergency Recovery Project (IIERP) for Haiti is to support the recipient in its early sustainable recovery efforts from the effects of the emergency, through selected interventions aiming at contributing to rebuilding key institutions and infrastructure. The project supports additional activities which are expected to enhance the original project's impact and development and address pending challenges to overall sustainability of the reform process. The project will continue to be implemented by Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) and the Ministry of Public Works, Transport and Communications (MTPTEC). Specifically, the project: a) improves efficiency and transparency in public resource use and strengthens Haiti's public sector management systems to improve overall governance and anticorruption and enhances the institutional foundation for continued reconstruction and post reconstruction recovery; b) ensures continuity of existing critical activities related to the continued reconstruction phase, including the restoration of key economic and financial functions of the Government of Haiti (GoH), and the rehabilitation of selected public infrastructure; rehabilitates the aviation safety equipment, and fosters further economic recovery through continued activities at the Trutier Debris Processing Facility, as well as rehabilitate existing roads between Cap Haitien and Labadie, and between Milot and Cap Haitien, both catalytic investments for tourism development; c) continues the provision of support to the MTPTEC to manage the ongoing recovery and reconstruction process, and incremental costs of project administration, supervision, monitoring and evaluation. Commitment Amount: US$ 65.00 million.
