The major component of the project is an improvement of silostorage system to storemilled rice (and wheat to a lesser extent) with a total capacity of around 535,500 tons. Subject to fullcompliance with the requirements in the publicly disclosed ESAMF and prior completion of all complementary site-specific studiesand analyses required, the silos would be constructed at about eight sites in various strategic locations across the country. Theeight sites proposed are on land currently owned by theDG Food, and no land acquisition will be required. BCCRF funds are expectedto be used for silo construction at the Narayangang site. Subject to the above requirements or in the event thatend-of-construction date at that site would go beyond the BCCRF Grant Agreement closing date, these funds could be used for thesilo construction at another project site, subject to prior consultations and approval by the BCCRF Management Committee.
