Development of Environmental and Social Management Framework, Resettlement Policy Framework and Indigenous People Planning Framework for Water Security and Climate Resilience Project (WSCRP)

Name of Client:

World Bank / Ministry of Water and Irrigation





Narrative Description of Project:

The Kenya Water Security and Climate Resilience Project (“the Project”), financed through a credit by the International Development Association (IDA), will be implemented by MWI from 2013-2020. The project is scheduled for approval in FY13, and is expected to include the following activities: (i) water resources development investments, including storage for all purposes; (ii) climate resilience and climate risk management investments; and (iii) water resources management investments, including institutional support.  The exact amount and scope of the project will be agreed during preparation.  An Investment Framework will be developed that will establish the eligibility and preparation criteria and procedures that are required to be met in order for sub-projects/investments to be funded under the Project.  The Project will be submitted to the WB Board for consideration around mid-2013.  In this regard, the World Bank and MWI have committed to advance project preparation in order to meet this schedule. The water component aims to support water resources development investments/sub-projects that are selected and prepared in line with the eligibility and preparation Framework.  Priority for water resources development investments/sub-projects that could be supported under the Project could include infrastructure for bulk water supply (including dam and groundwater development) and flood management, upstream activities to ensure the sustainability of investments (e.g., catchment management for selected sites, community outreach, etc.), and enhanced downstream productive water uses to ensure investment performance (e.g., irrigation development, water supply, etc.).  Investments would be considered within a catchment-based approach and may be accompanied by site-specific measures to increase resilience to natural hazards and allow for adequate disaster preparedness.
