Vanuatu Infrastructure Reconstruction and Improvement Project

Vanuatu Infrastructure Reconstruction and Improvement Project


The development objective of the Infrastructure Reconstruction and Improvement Project for Vanuatu is to reconstruct and/or improve the disaster and climate resilience of selected public sector assets in provinces impacted by Tropical Cyclone (TC) Pam, and to provide immediate and effective response to an Eligible Crisis or Emergency.

Work will focus on fixing damage related to roads, schools and public buildings with improvements including better drainage and at least one building in selected schools being brought up to the standard required for an evacuation center. If needed, the project also allows funds to be used for eligible emergencies, providing faster and more streamlined access to cash in the case of future natural disasters.

Funded through the International Development Association Crisis Response Window, the project is made up of a US$25 million credit and US$25 million grant, and is consistent with the Government of Vanuatu’s Disaster Risk Reduction and Disaster Management National Action Plan (2006-2016), and the Vanuatu Infrastructure Strategic Investment Plan (2015-2024). The project consists of five components.
