REDI II - Project Components

REDI II - Project Components

REDI II provides financial and technical support through grants for eligible projects under four components:
 
Component 1 
 

Climate Resilient Agricultural and Community Tourism Investments for Rural Enterprises

Total US$28.0 million, IBRD US$26.0 million and Beneficiary Contribution US$2.0 million).

 

The objective of this component is to promote the development of agricultural/community tourism

enterprises that are better integrated in productive partnerships or “alliances" and operate more

competitively in selected value chains, with more reliable linkages with buyers and markets and increased capacity to manage climate risks.

 

 

Examples of   Component 1 Projects

Agriculture:

  • Protected Agriculture
  • Value added production
  • Small Ruminant Production (sheep and goats)
  • Fisheries development
  • Water harvesting and drip irrigation systems
  • Youth led initiatives
  • Post-harvest/Cold storage Infrastructure and Packing sheds
  • Introduction of new crop varieties and innovative production methods
  • Farm and Farmer certification programmes
  • Technical Assistance & Capacity Building
  •        

Tourism:

  • Agro tourism experiences
  • Product Development & Tour Packaging for Community Tourism Enterprises
  • Marketing & Promotion
  • Craft Development
  • Cultural heritage tours and experiences
  • Technical Assistance & Capacity Building

 

Component 2:

Institutional Strengthening and Capacity Building for Public Entities

IBRD US$8.0 million

 

This component aims to strengthen the capacity of relevant public sector institutions—the

Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture, and Fisheries (MICAF), MOT, and JSIF—and associated entities, Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA), Tourism Product Development Company (TPDCo), and others) to provide the public infrastructure and quality services needed to promote inclusive rural development (based on the agriculture and tourism nexus) and to ensure the sustainability of the rural enterprises and productive partnerships supported by the project.

 

Subcomponent 2.1Public Infrastructure Investments (IBRD US$6.0 million). This subcomponent will

finance civil works, goods, and consulting services for the priority public infrastructure investments (to

develop new or rehabilitate existing infrastructure) required to improve the efficiency and climate

resilience of targeted agri-food and tourism value chains.

 

Subcomponent 2.2: Technical Assistance and Capacity Building (IBRD US$2.0 million). This

subcomponent will finance technical assistance (consultant and non-consultant services, goods, training,

workshops, and study tours) to strengthen the capacity of relevant national organizations and other

partner entities responsible for assisting the agricultural and community tourism enterprises.

 

Component 3:

Project Management, Monitoring, and Evaluation

This component will finance incremental costs associated with the coordination, administration, supervision, and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of project implementation by JSIF and the technical Project Management Team (PMT) that JSIF will establish for REDI II. Costs to be financed include technical expertise (agriculture, tourism, business development, M&E, and so on), salaries of other contractual staff of JSIF supporting the project, staff training, annual audit, vehicles, office equipment, and other operating costs. This component will also ensure that effective safeguard, fiduciary, and M&E arrangements are in place during implementation.

 

Component 4:

Contingent Emergency Response

This component will allow loan proceeds to be reallocated from other components to support emergency recovery and reconstruction following an eligible crisis or emergency at the national or subnational level. Specifically, given the design of the proposed project, this Contingent Emergency Response Component (CERC) is expected to be operationalized through a reallocation from Component 1 to provide emergency recovery and reconstruction support. To ensure that there is capacity to implement this component, the POM includes a CERC annex applicable to eligible disasters detailing fiduciary, safeguard, monitoring, reporting, and any other implementation arrangements necessary.
