According to the bank website, the project’s principal goal is to build resilience to food and nutrition in security in the project intervention areas in the Horn of Africa. BREFONS’s specific objective is to build resilience to food insecurity and climate change by enabling participating countries to: (i) increase agropastoral productivity and production systems in cross-border areas in the IGAD region (the regional clusters); (ii) make agropastoral value chains more competitive, thereby ultimately boosting trade and incomes; and (iii) enhance populations’ adaptive capacity so that people can better prepare for and manage climate change, climate risks, and climate variations.

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 email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and/or firstname.lastname@example.org.
