The World Bank Group Project for Odisha is restoring and improving housing and public services in targeted communities. The project's main components include:
1) Resilient housing reconstruction and community infrastructure in the districts of Ganjam, Puri, and Khordha;
2) Urban infrastructure in Berhampur will finance investments to improve public services in Berhampur while at the same time reduce the vulnerability of its population, including improved drainage to reduce floods, and increasing the resilience of public service infrastructure;
3) Capacity building in disaster risk management to support Odisha State Disaster Management Authority (OSDMA) in strengthening their overall capacity towards better risk mitigation, preparedness, and disaster response, in line with global best practices; and
4) Project implementation support. The Project also has a contingent emergency response component which would make funds immediately available to respond to eligible crisis of emergencies should they occur during Project implementation.
