Moldova: Social Investment Fund II Project

January 26, 2010

IDA Credit: US$20 million

Project ID: P079314


Project Description: To date, the Moldova Social Investment Fund Project (MSIF I and II) has assisted over 700 localities in addressing local development needs. It has provided access to natural gas and funded major improvements in roads, schools, kindergartens, cultural centers and other social institutions across Moldova. The US $20 million will be directed towards scaling-up the community development component, and most importantly, it will increase the labor-intensiveness of works, and deliver as much employment as possible in 2010 and 2011, when economic conditions are likely to be weak.
