The funds are allocated for covering the expenses incurred from clearance of the road infrastructure, the construction of temporary dikes and the cleaning of critical sections of river beds.

Funds are also foreseen for the execution of several landslide mitigation projects, which will reinforce landslides that activated following the abundant precipitations.
