The West and Central African Air Transport Safety and Security Project for Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Guinea, and Mali aims to improve civil aviation authorities' compliance with safety and security standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), and enhance the main international airports' compliance with ICAO's security standards.
The extension is consistent with the requirements of OP/BP 13.30 as: (i) the Project's Development Objectives (PDO) continues to be achievable; (ii) the performance of implementing agencies and recipients is satisfactory; and (iii) an action plan has been prepared and agreed with each government to complete the project satisfactorily. The changes do not require any change in the project objective and description.
Accordingly, the package is being processed as a level two restructuring, requiring the Vice President's approval since it involves a cumulative extension of the closing date of more than two years from the original closing date.
