The objective of the grant is to support the Bank’s
previous and current DRM and Climate Resilient activities and thereby enable early
project identification / preparation for a Disaster Risk Management and Climate
Resilience lending project. The new project is in the pipeline with WPA
allocated and currently scheduled for delivery in FY23. The Bank’s engagement would
directly address a key issue identified in the draft Strategic County
Diagnostic (SCD), specifically the pillar strengthening resilience
particularly to climate change which will be the basis for the new Country
Partnership Framework (CPF) that will be developed next year.
