According to the bank website, this project from the Special Relief Fund to assist internally displaced persons (IDPs) living in sites located in Bamako in the country of Mali. The current intervention is part of a humanitarian approach and consists of providing emergency assistance to improve the living conditions and livelihoods of people affected by terrorist attacks and social tensions within communities. This action focuses on the needs of IDPs and host communities in Bamako caused by instability in central and northern Mali resulting in forced displacement and irregular migration flows. It has two priority areas, namely: (i) resilience and improved self-sufficiency with the distribution of in-kind goods, fortified food and micronutrients; and the provision of shelter (tents) and survival equipment; (ii) peaceful coexistence and enhanced protection of IDPs in the sites through access to drinking water, hygiene and sanitation and the identification and monitoring of the number of women at risk of GBV, unaccompanied children and the violation of their rights, and people without civil documents to ensure their protection and access to civil rights. The operation should be implemented within a reasonable timeframe and its total duration should not exceed six (6) months from the date of approval of the grant.
