(5) Contingent Emergency Response Component is added to the project structure to provide support to the GoCV to respond to emergencies, including the COVID-19 crisis It will have an initial zero value but may be financed during the implementation of the project to allow for agile response to emerging events, with funds redirected from other components. Including CERC at the preparation stage, albeit with zero funding, provides for flexibility to respond to an imminent or actual emergency (such as COVID-19).
