According to the AfDB, the proposed operation is a TSF Pillar III grant of UA 1 million to the Republic of South Sudan to finance the Entrepreneurship Support to Refugees and Host Communities in South Sudan Project. The ESRHC-SS project is complementing other Bank funded projects in South Sudan to maximize the impact on job creation. The ESRHC-SS project is designed to deliver targeted self-reliance solutions with measurable outcomes at the community level of refugees and host communities driven by financial inclusion, private sector engagement, and value chain development. The project comprises three components: (i) Increased access to skills training. This component aims to support the youth to increase access to demand-driven skills and promote equal opportunity; (ii) Sustainable women-led enterprise development. This component aims to support women to manage shocks and risks and increase their welfare through sustainable enterprise development; (iii) Project management and Institutional 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 firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or email@example.com.
