Project Description

According to AfDB website, this humanitarian assistance operation is part of the humanitarian relief effort. It has been designed because the Great South of Madagascar is facing a deterioration in the nutritional situation and household food security, after several consecutive years of poor harvests linked to a recurring drought since 2014. It is a Bank-financed operation for the purchase and distribution of food to combat acute food insecurity and of specialised nutritional products for the prevention of acute malnutrition. The planned interventions complement the efforts made by the Malagasy government and its partners to assist the population. The aid comprises three main components, namely: (A) food assistance for the most vulnerable groups; (B) prevention of acute malnutrition; and (C) management and supervision of the operation.

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/
