Tanzania | Water Sector Support Project

Tanzania | Water Sector Support Project

FY14-16 | Net Progress: 6.7 million people with access to water; 2.7 million people with access to sanitation.

The objective of this recently closed project was to support the Tanzania Water Sector Development Program in (a) improving integrated water resources management by strengthening water sector institutions; and (b) expanding access to water supply and sanitation services. The program’s community-driven development (CDD) approach provided the opportunity for primary beneficiaries to manage their own water supply and sanitation facilities and fully participate in water resources planning, management, and development decision-making. The program made significant progress in providing access to safe water supply in rural and urban areas, with 3 million urban and 9.2 million rural people gaining access to safe water supply, a total of 5.15 million people (1.03 million households) gaining access to improved sanitation services. It is estimated that 7.08 million females bene ted from the project’s interventions.

India | The Third Elementary Education Project (SSA III)

India | The Third Elementary Education Project (SSA III)

FY16 | Approximately 1.46 million teachers benefited through in-service teacher training, out of which 670,000 were female. Project to directly bene t about 200 million children enrolled in elementary schools and 4.5 million teachers in the sector.

The project was designed to improve education outcomes of elementary school children by developing enhanced accountability measures in the form of assessment of learning outcomes and providing teacher training and learning materials. The World Bank is providing about USD$250 million to develop a comprehensive and effective teacher development and management system to improve the quality of education in elementary schools. It is using innovative approaches, such as technology-driven and distance learning models so teachers can continue to be their students even while upgrading their skills and knowledge.

Bangladesh | Rural Electrification and Renewable Energy Development II (RERED II) Project

Bangladesh | Rural Electrification and Renewable Energy Development II (RERED II) Project

FY14-16 | 3million people now have access to electricity. More than 6,000 farmers have bene ted from the 300 pumps installed.

The project objective was to increase access to clean energy through renewable energy in rural areas.Over the reporting period of this corporate scorecard, RERED II project in Bangladesh provided about 3mn people with access to electricity. The project pilots the installation of solar-powered irrigation pumps and aims to increase access to clean energy in rural Bangladesh where grids are not economically viable. More than 6,000 farmers have bene ted from the 300 pumps installed thus far, with a target of 1,250 additional pumps by 2018.

China | Fujian Highway Sector Investment Project

China | Fujian Highway Sector Investment Project

FY14-16 | About 1.31 million people are estimated to have directly bene ted from the project.

Under this project, an IBRD loan of US$370 million supported the rehabilitation of 1,299 rural roads with a total length of 5,402 kilometers, and construction of the 195-kilometer Yong’an-Wuping Expressway in coastal Fujian Province in southeast China. The project helped reduce poverty in the remote and mountainous area by reducing the cost and time to access economic opportunities and social services and providing a missing link in the national highway system. Other results: about half of the women in villages have changed from heavy farm work to non-agriculture jobs. Rural road connections improved the accessibility of health care by reducing the time for going to hospitals. The improved travel conditions signi cantly reduce the commuting time of teachers and students, promoting the development of education in the rural area.

Ethiopia | Sustainable Land Management Project-II

Ethiopia | Sustainable Land Management Project-II

FY16 | 224,775 farmers have adopted new technology

Ethiopia’s Sustainable Land Management Project-II is the Bank’s agship resilient landscapes operation. Along with providing funding, the WBG also played the central role in convening partners for joint action, including Norway, Canada, Germany, and the International Fund for Agricultural Development. The project reported that 224,775 farmers have adopted new technology, and since 2008 260,000 hectares of production lands are now better managed, bene ting more than 700,000 people (36% female). The project is considered innovative as it emphasizes a multisectoral landscape approach that supports the Government of Ethiopia in coordinating efforts on land use, land management, and land administration. This approach will generate multiple bene ts, contributing to, among other things, productivity, resilience to climate risks, enhancements to natural wealth and diverse livelihood opportunities, and water security – and ultimately poverty reduction and prosperity improvement.

 Madagascar | Social Safety Net Project

Madagascar | Social Safety Net Project

FY14-16 | Program for 40,000 households with children ages 0 – 12. Also covers 500,000 extreme poor people, mostly women and children.

This project supported Madagascar’s two safety net programs:

  1. (a)  The Human Development (conditional) Cash Transfer program for 40,000 households with children ages 0-12 is linked to primary school attendance and promotes early childhood development and the nutrition of young children, including through a behavioral design approach.

  2. (b)  The Productive Safety Net Program provides a reliable source of household incomes.

The safety net programs cover 500,000 extremely poor people, mostly women and children; at least 75 percent of cash bene ts go directly to women; and 32,000 households participate in regular cash-for-work activities. Under the project, a national bene ciary registry was established for social safety net bene ciaries, and children’s primary school attendance rates improved to 97 percent.
