Project Description
The development objective of Social Safety Net Project for Burkina Faso is to provide income support to poor households and to lay the foundations for a basic safety net system in the country. This restructuring for additional financing requires the following changes: (i) revision to the PDO and Results Framework; (ii) extending the closing date of the parent project to August 31, 2020; (iii) amplification of component 1, adding a short-term, shock responsive modality of cash transfers; and (iv) a change in institutional arrangements, as the Project Implementation Unit (PIU) will be led by a new coordinator and new financial management specialist. The parent project is Social Safety Net Project (P124015)
