The project CM-Urban and Water Development Support Project has changed to Closed. To see more information, see the project information in the World Bank project database The development objective of the Urban and Water Development Support Project for Cameroon is to increase access of the urban population, particularly those living in low-income settlements, to basic infrastructure and services, including water. The additional financing would use funds from the International Development Association (IDA) pilot Crisis Response Window (CRW) aimed at addressing some of the near-term impacts of the current financial crisis and sustaining social activities while the government's policy responses is taking effect along with the progressive deployment of donor support. It would protect the functioning of essential social services when the resources of the national budget are negatively impacted by the crisis. It will therefore help protect core spending to preserve human and social capital, a key objective of the Pilot CRW. The additional financing (US$28.7 million) expand or scale-up the project to enhance its development impact (US$14.6 million); meet a financing gap resulting from the delayed availability of parallel funding sources (US$12.0 million); and finance cost overruns to complete some original project activities (US$2.1 million).
