Haiti: Municipal Development and Urban Resilience Project.

Scope :

The Project Development Objective is to improve delivery of resilient infrastructure, local services and urban management in the metropolitan area of Cap-Haitien.

The Project will contribute to the sustainable and resilient urban development of the metropolitan region of Cap Haitien through a combination of investment support and capacity building. The Project will focus on the six municipalities of the metropolitan region of Cap Haitien, benefiting the populations of Cap Haitien (244,660 inhabitants), Limonade (50,150 inhabitants), Quartier Morin (24,881 inhabitants), Plaine du Nord (37,518 inhabitants), Acul du Nord (50,884 inhabitants) and Milot (29,094 inhabitants). The Project will include four main components: Component 1: Investment Support and Capacity Building for Metropolitan Local Authorities The component aims at providing investment and technical support to municipalities in the metropolitan region with the objective of enhancing the capacity of the municipalities to plan, fund, and implement resilient infrastructures and local services and coordinate delivery of services at the metropolitan level through on-the-job training. The component also aims at reducing disparities in service delivery and capacity among Metropolitan Local Authorities (MLAs) and promoting sustainable and resilient growth opportunities in peripheral municipalities of the metropolitan region, thus contributing to a more balanced spatial development pattern within the metropolitan region of Cap-Haitien. The component will fund the following three inter-linked sub-components: (i) investment support for municipalities; (ii) support to metropolitan development planning and strategies, and (iii) institutional strengthening and capacity building for municipalities. Resilience considerations will be mainstreamed in all sub-components. Sub-component 1-1: Investment support for municipalities This sub-component aims at strengthening municipal capacity to deliver local services through targeted investment support and on-the-job training. To do so, this sub-component would fund a line of financing (grant) and implementation support for small scale municipal investments (sub- projects) identified based on local priorities and implemented under a number of conditions and incentives agreed with the MLAs to ensure the sustainability and resilience of the investments, and full alignment with metropolitan and local plans. The investment support will help MLAs to (i) respond effectively to local demand for better and more resilient services and infrastructures and gain greater credibility with their constituencies through immediate and visible service delivery improvements, and (ii) support implementation of selected pilot inter-municipal projects of metropolitan relevance The design of the line of financing will build on the experience of the Investment Fund of Local Authorities (FICT) under the pilot Appui a la Gouvernance et a
