Sub-component 1.2 (Labor Intensive Economic Recovery) will introduce labor intensive Emergency Projects that create jobs and improve municipal infrastructure in response to the pandemic. The subcomponent will support activities like construction or rehabilitation of gravel roads, pavement of tertiary streets, canal/drain cleaning, rehabilitation of parks, street cleaning, disinfection campaigns and other labor-intensive activities as identified by the municipalities. The component would also support provision of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for undertaking municipal services and works.
These activities would have the option to be implemented at the decentralized level by municipalities, with requisite financial management and procurement support from the CIP Project Implementation Unit (PIU). This will help achieve long-term development objectives of building municipalities’ capacity for investment planning, project design, procurement, supervision, and financial management.
