According to bank provided information, the proposed operation is for a grant to the Republic of Liberia for UA four million to finance the Liberia Emergency Food Production Program in Liberia from the resources of the Transition Support Facility Pillar I Grant. This is a Sector Budget Support under the African Emergency Food Production Facility (AEFPF) and will be implemented from 2022 to 2024. The Program is the Bank's contribution to the Government's response to the rising food prices caused by the disruptions of the Ukraine war. It will focus on climate resilient production, harvesting, and the marketing of rice. The Government, through the Ministry of Agriculture, will provide smart subsidies to reduce the cost of certified climate resilient rice seeds and fertilizers available to smallholder farmers, as well as extend support to climate smart post-harvest management and marketing of rice over two cropping seasons. The Bank's resources will enable Government to facilitate farmers' access to improved seeds, agro-chemicals, and fertilizer. The program will: i) improve food and nutrition security in Liberia; and ii) improve the regulatory environment for climate-smart agricultural input use.
