LB - First Municipal Infrastructure Project 
The First Municipal Infrastructure Project aims to address urgent municipal works while setting the stage for gradual assumption of responsibility for municipal services at the local level. The project will, in the short term, restore selected basic municipal infrastructure to improve living conditions, and, in the medium term, set the stage for the development of the municipal sector by enabling municipalities to begin addressing local infrastructure maintenance and rehabilitation needs. The project consists of three components: a) Upgrading and rehabilitating basic municipal infrastructure will carry out a program for the rehabilitation and upgrading of essential infrastructure in all the municipalities of the Borrower, which includes constructing, upgrading, rehabilitating, and maintaining essential roads and sidewalks, retaining walls, pedestrian crossings, street lights, safety barriers, etc. b) Capacity building will develop, implement, and maintain a program for infrastructure rehabilitation, including feasibility studies, tender document preparation, subproject technical design, and maintenance programming. It will also support the strengthening of the capacity of the Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs. c) Project coordination unit will support provision of equipment and consultant services.**
