This project is an extension of the Flood Protection Project (FPSP-I), Its design is based on the Project Preparation Study, April 1997. Major improvements incorporated in the design of the second project include the adoption of an integrated approach to river management, arrangements to examine alternative designs of flood protection works and the participation of beneficiaries in its implementation and subsequent operation and maintenance. The project will also start to address the following problems that were identified during the Project’s preparation as inhibiting the development of an effective national flood protection system and inadequate capacity for strategic planning; lack of coordination between Government agencies in the sector; unsatisfactory monitoring of flood protection work; and, the low level of operation and maintenance.
