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.
The development objective of the Productive Social Safety Nets Project for Guinea is to provide income support to vulnerable groups and to lay the foundations of a social safety nets strategy by testing some of the building blocks necessary for a larger system. It comprises the following four components. 1) Labor Intensive Public Works (LIPW) with a focus on women and youth, and life skills development will remain to support activities aimed at providing income support for vulnerable groups including women and youth; 2) Pilot Conditional Cash Transfer to Protect Human Capital will continue to support the pilot Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) and school feeding activities that are committed; 3) Project coordination and institutional capacity building will be modified from ‘project management’ to ‘project coordination and institutional capacity building’ to reflect the full scope of activities being financed and 4) Prevention of the Ebola epidemic can be easily financed by either a reallocation from other project components or an additional financing (AF). The proposed AF aims to scale up a well-performing productive safety nets operation, which includes LIPW and cash transfer activities targeting the poorest and most vulnerable people. The parent project will be restructured to (a) reflect a change in the name of the second component and (b) extend the closing date from October 17, 2017 to September 30, 2019 to align it with the proposed AF.
