Lessons from Processing and Ongoing Implementation of Emergency Rehabilitation of Calamity Damage Project in Viet Nam
Asian Development Bank | March 2009
Incessant storms and floods during June–October 2005 caused exceptional damage to rural infrastructure in several provinces of Viet Nam. In response to the Government’s request for emergency assistance, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) carried out a damage and needs assessment in early 2006, and approved a loan of $50.97 million in November 2006 for the Emergency Rehabilitation of Calamity Damage Project.1 Two years later, the Board approved a supplementary loan in the amount of $25.5 million, in December 2008.2 As a follow-on to the Special Evaluation Study on Project Performance and the Project Cycle (SES-PPPC),3 the Independent Evaluation Department (IED) undertook a real-time case study (the Study) of the ongoing implementation of the Project through a desk review and field visits to Viet Nam in February 2009. The purpose of the Study was to draw lessons and provide recommendations to improve the design and implementation of future emergency projects.
