Project Description
The development objective of Fourth Productive Safety Net Project for Ethiopia is to increase access to effective safety net and disaster risk management systems, and complementary livelihood and nutrition services for food insecure households in rural Ethiopia. This project requires second additional financing to scale up the project activities in response to the prolonged drought in Ethiopia. This project has three components. 1) The first component, Social Protection and Disaster Risk Management Systems, aims to support the social protection and DRM systems which will include strengthening the targeting of the program, putting in place a national household registry, improving the management information system (MIS), early warning triggers and response mechanisms, and capacity development. 2) The second component, Productive Safety Net Transfers and Links to Livelihoods Services, has the following three subcomponents: (i) safety net transfers to chronically food insecure households and support to a scalable response mechanism for transitory needs; (ii) sustainable community assets and human capital investments; and (iii) enhanced access to complementary livelihoods services for client households through crop and livestock production, off-farm income-generating activities, and labor or employment linkages. 3) The third component, Institutional Capacity Building and Project Management Support, aims to support sustainable capacity development and institutional strengthening to implement the project. The parent project is the ET Productive Safety Nets Project 4 (PSNP 4) (P146883)
