Project Description
The Project Development Objective is to increase access to priority basic social and economic infrastructures and services in participating communities in at least two regions of Guinea-Bissau. The proposed Additional Financing (AF) would finance the costs to scale-up the Project's community-driven development activities, and pilot a Cash Transfer program. More specifically, the proposed Second AF from IDA would: (i) scale up the target number of community-development plans under the Capacity-building for Community Development component (Component 1) and the number of micro-projects under the Community-based Micro-Projects component (Components 2); (ii) increase resources for the Project Coordination and Monitoring and Evaluation component (Component 3); and (iii) pilot a Cash Transfer program to targeted vulnerable households, in poor communities (Component 6 - new).
