Enhancing Agricultural Resilience and National Food Security (EALCRP)
The World Bank Funded Emergency Agricultural Livelihoods and Climate Resilience Project Contributes directly to Dominica’s National Agricultural Policy and Action Plan 2016–2025 that identified several key needs for agricultural development, including a more modernized agriculture sector, increased farm productivity, and overall climate resilience of the country’s agriculture and food systems.
The Project Development Objective (PDO) is to contribute to restoring agricultural livelihoods and enhancing climate resilience of farmers and fisherfolk affected by Hurricane Maria in Dominica.
The Project has 4 Components:
(A) Restoration of Productive Base for Recovery of Agricultural Livelihoods that aims to help small-, medium-size, and commercially oriented crop and livestock farmers and fisherfolks in the process of restoring their basic productive capacity through provision of key inputs , and provide technical assistance for the development of more productive, climate-resilient systems and the promotion of agribusiness capabilities;
(B) Restoration of Key Productive Infrastructure and Institutional Strengthening by restoring Key Infrastructure in Agriculture, Livestock, and assets damaged by the hurricane and reestablish the essential public services that farmers depend on, and provide capacity-building assistance to the ministry in the core areas
(C) Project Management and Coordination by stablishing a Project Implementation Unit within the Ministry of Blue and Green Economy, Agriculture and National Food Security to serve as the unit responsible for the implementation and coordination unit for the project;
(D) Contingency Emergency Response-CER, a zero-cost component that will finance eligible expenditures under the CER to provide immediate response to an eligible crisis and can be triggered through the formal declaration of an emergency by the government authority and upon a formal request from the GoD to the World Bank through the MoF.
