According to the Bank’s website, the project is a Crisis Response Budget Support (CRBS) operation prepared under the African Emergency Food Production Facility (AEFPF). This is a Transition Support Facility (TSF) grant of UA 4 Million. The programme is broken down into two complementary components to sustainably increase food production: (i) facilitation of small-scale producers' access to factors of production and agroclimatic information; and (ii) strengthening of the agricultural sector institutional framework. The measures supported by the Programme will contribute to the achievement of the following outcomes: (i) maize and rice productivity and production have increased; (ii) small producers' access to the factors of production is facilitated; (iii) the institutional framework for facilitating small-scale producers' access to the factors of production is strengthened. PRCASUT will be implemented from July 2022 to December 2023.
The Programme's objective is to strengthen food sovereignty and build the resilience of smallscale producers to the impacts of the war in Ukraine. The specific objectives are to i) facilitate access by small-scale agricultural producers to climate-resilient seeds and highquality fertilisers and ii) reinforce the institutional framework of the agricultural sector.

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.
