Project Description

The proposed Emergency Relief Assistance Operation will be funded using resources from the Bank's Special Relief Fund (SRF). The grant funds will be used to purchase food items and water, as well as associated costs of transportation and distribution of food rations to the beneficiaries and payment of administrative fees to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the project Implementing Agency. Preferably, if possible, some of the food items will be purchased locally by FAO. The funds provided by the Bank are restricted and earmarked for the purposes of urgent humanitarian assistance to the affected populations only.

The objective of the proposed Bank Group Emergency Relief Assistance to the South Sudan is to contribute to the on-going efforts of the Governments and other humanitarian partners to meet the urgent and immediate needs of the vulnerable population and the victims of the current water and food crisis. This objective will be achieved through the provision of emergency water and food relief. The main aim of the emergence assistance is to provide food and nutrition support, food-for-asset activities,where feasible. Selected food items will be provided to targeted vulnerable groups of beneficiaries, complementing contributions from other donors

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.
