Between November 1
and 18, 2020, two consecutive tropical cyclones, Eta and Iota, hit and damaged
all Central American Countries, with an impact magnitude comparable to 1998’s
Hurricane Mitch. To address
the above challenges, the GoH requested a US$150 million project to support
Honduras’ response and recovery needs and strengthen institutional capacity to
manage resilient and inclusive reconstruction and recovery from disasters. The
project will focus in particular on social infrastructure (schools and
education centers, hospitals and health centers) as well as transport and water
infrastructure. This TA’s
objective is to support the implementation of an expedient, resilient and
inclusive recovery from TS Eta and Iota in Honduras, with a focus on supporting resilient reconstruction of public infrastructure and the development and the implementation of the Emergency Recovery Project’s
Communication Strategy.
