Project Description

According to bank documents, The Bank’s grant of USD 480,000 will address strategic priority needs and contribute to the funding gap of the Response Plan for COVID 19 for Libya, with a focus on infection prevention and control so as to limit the spread of the disease and shield the communities, including those most vulnerable, from being infected. This Bank’s intervention will seek to compliment ongoing humanitarian activities by the UN agencies and international organizations to mitigate the negative effects of the virus pandemic on the population living in Libya. The emergency assistance by the Bank is aimed at partially filling the financing gap identified to ensure that response plan for COVID-19 is implemented with a focus on case management, particularly procuring adequate personal protection equipment to ease the reluctance of medical staff in treating patients. The Bank will continue monitoring the situation with a view to exploring short-to-medium term options for additional support.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF AfDB

The Independent Review Mechanism (IRM), which is administered by the Compliance Review and Mediation Unit (CRMU), is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an African Development Bank (AfDB)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a dispute resolution dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the AfDB complied with its policies to prevent environmental and social harms. You can submit a complaint electronically by emailing crmuinfo@afdb.org, b.kargougou@afdb.org, b.fall@afdb.org, and/or s.toure@afdb.org. You can learn more about the IRM and how to file a complaint at: https://www.afdb.org/en/independent-review-mechanism/
