The World Bank board on 24 June approved $150m from the International Development Association for the Kandadji dam project. The funds are the third funding package agreed by the bank for the project. The package includes a €92m ($100m) loan and a grant of SDR36.6m ($50m) to help fund the first phase of resettlement and livelihood support, which is expected to cost $434.2m in total. The funding will build housing for resettled communities and provide drinking water and sanitation to the resettlement sites. It will also provide transition support to resettled populations, with a focus on vulnerable people.
