IDA Grant: US$35 Million

Project Description: This additional financing to the Republic of Yemen for the Flood Protection and Emergency Reconstruction Project will help finance the costs associated with the reconstruction and rehabilitation of selected key infrastructure destroyed or damaged by the level-three tropical storm and floods that hit Yemen in October 2008. The additional funds will support the existing Taiz Municipal Development, and Flood Protection Project (TMDFPP) to repair and rebuild, to adequate flood-proof standards, selected priority damaged infrastructure in the disaster-affected areas in Hadramout and Al-Mahara Governorates in the aim of rehabilitating this critical infrastructure to enable the restoration of livelihoods affected by the disaster, and protecting residents, economic activities and infrastructure from the effects of future flooding.
