In these projects centralized agencies administer and allocate funds to organizations and institutions that operate at the regional or local level to implement subprojects. The central agencies are supervisors of the use of World Bank funds and are required to adhere to project objectives, loan agreements, and fiduciary, environmental, and social safeguard measures. The subprojects covered by these four projects include: water supply and sanitation; solid waste management; irrigation; agriculture; natural resource management; coastal resource management; watershed management; reforestation; fisheries; forestry; rural enterprise; farm to market roads (FMR); rural infrastructure; and natural resource management (NRM).
