This intervention is the second supplementary loan of the Massingir Dam Emergency Rehabilitation Project (MDERP-SLII) in Mozambique. The initial Massingir Dam Emergency Rehabilitation Project (MDERP) was appraised in March 2009 as a response to an emergency when the Massingir Dam’s bottom outlets collapsed resulting in the release of an uncontrollable outflow of water to downstream areas. A first additional lending transaction (MDDEP-SL) was approved in May 2013. Unfortunately, due to financial problems which have been experienced by the Government during implementation of MDERP SL, the Government was unable to provide part of the required financial resources. This has resulted in an outstanding amount of about UA 4.94 million. The Massingir Dam Project is of high economic, environmental and social importance to the country and without the second supplementary loan (MDERP-SL-II) to bridge the shortfall, the Project cannot be fully implemented which will result in exposure of uncompleted structures in Massingir District. The supplementary loan consists of one component, namely Rehabilitation of the Massingir Dam Bottom Outlets with two (2) sub-components (i) Completion of Dam Safety Structures, and (ii) Project Management. The Project cost, including physical and price contingencies, is UA 4.94 million (including taxes and duties).
The sector goal is to contribute to national objective of increasing agricultural productivity to ensure food security and nutrition. The Project goal is to ensure smooth rehabilitation of the Massingir Dam bottom outlets. The Project objectives are to (i) ensure sustainability and operational efficiency of Massingir Dam, and (ii) improve food production and the living standards of the people around and downstream of Massingir Dam.
The beneficiaries are the people of Massingir Districts in Gaza Province. The Gaza Province has a total population of 1.6 million people out of which 56% are women.
