Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to bank documents, the Post Cyclone Idai and Kenneth Emergency Recovery and Resilience Programme (PCIREP) is designed in response to the devastation and destruction caused by these phenomena in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi. It aims to restore livelihoods, wellbeing and build resilience of the communities in the three affected countries with the emphasis of reaching the furthest behind first. The program proposes solutions to tackle recovery and resilience processes in a medium to long-term perspective through a multi-sectoral and build-back-better approach to infrastructure reconstruction/rehabilitation, restoration of agricultural livelihoods and promotion of resilience to climate shocks, disasters, and extreme weather events. The programme is expected to restore livelihoods and wellbeing of the affected communities and increase access to productive resources through agriculture productivity and resilience and rehabilitation of socioeconomic infrastructure to facilitate integration, connectivity and economic activities in the region. The programme has three components, namely: (i) Enhanced agricultural productivity and resilience, (ii) Sustainable socioeconomic infrastructure and (iii) Institutional strengthening and programme management.

The goal of the programme is to restore and improve sustainable livelihoods of the affected vulnerable groups of the population, enhance disaster risk reduction, early warning preparedness, support inclusive social and economic recovery empowerment, and enhance post recovery adaptive capacity.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.

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.
