Project Description
The objective of the CAR Service Delivery and Support to Communities Affected by Displacement Project for Central African Republic is to increase access to basic services, infrastructure and safety nets for communities affected by forced displacement. There are three components to the project, the first component being Access to basic services and infrastructure. The objective of this component is to improve access by communities affected by displacement to basic services and infrastructure by financing the construction and rehabilitation of infrastructure. The component funds are allocated based on factors of population and numbers of displaced in the areas of project intervention. Annex one presents the allocation of funds per area, based on a combination of these factors. The total amount corresponds to about US$78 per capita, which is quite high compared to other projects in sub-Saharan Africa, but should be seen in the context of historic under investment and absence of even the most basic services in project areas, including all-season roads, water and sanitation, etc. The second component is the safety nets. The objective of this component is to provide timely and regular cash transfers (CT) to selected households. These transfers will serve as relief to vulnerable households in areas affected by forced displacement so as to meet immediate consumption needs. It is also expected that by ensuring the timeliness of transfers over a period of two years the project will progressively build lost private assets. Finally, the third component is the community mobilization, capacity building, technical assistance, and project management. This component will finance the costs associated with community mobilization and accompanying measures foreseen for components one and two, capacity building, technical assistance to national and local institutions and costs associated wi
