According to bank provided information, the proposed operation is for an additional funding from the Transition State Facility Pillar I at the African Development Bank not exceeding a grant of UA 4.00 million, to finance the activities of Post Cyclone Idai and Kenneth Emergency Recovery and Resilience Programme (PCIREP) in Mozambique under Agriculture Emergence Food Production Facility (AEFPF) to respond to the food crisis due to the war in Ukraine and mitigate risks. The additional financial resources will be used to provide certified seeds of climate-adapted varieties, fertilizers, and quality extension services under Component 1 (Enhanced Agricultural Productivity and Resilience) of the project by facilitating modern inputs to farmers and farmer groups and Component 3 (Institutional Strengthening and Program Management) support policy reforms including strengthening national institutions with laboratory equipment overseeing input markets and agro-dealers associations and support policy and regulations design. The additional financing will generate economic and financial benefits for the country since it will help to reduce the food prices for maize, soyabeans and sesame. The Bank is also expecting complementary financing from USAID in the amount ofof US$ 5 million and 2 million from NORAD.
