The implementing Government Agencies are Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) and the President’s Office – Regional Administration and Local Government (PO-RALG). Both Ministries are responsible for implementation of school-level education activities through the Local Government Authority (LGA). One of the key components to be implemented through SEQUIP is facilitating access to secondary schools and bringing schools closer to communities. The project plans to support construction of 1000 new schools and rehabilitation of additional facilities at existing secondary schools. A need and evidence-based approach will be used in identification and selecting locations and schools that will benefit.
The Implementing Government Agencies (MoEST and PO-RALG), have prepared five Environmental and Social Safeguard instruments which will guide implementation of SEQUIP, in alignment with the 2018 World Bank Environmental and Social Framework. The instruments include:-
- Vulnerable Group Planning Framework,
- Stakeholders’ Engagement Plan,
- Resettlement Action Plan,
- Environmental and Social Management Framework and
- Environmental and Social Commitment Plan.
The five instruments identify how risks will be mitigated and prevented, during project implementation.
