It also requires the following changes: 1) The new PDO for the would be: to (i) improve access to livelihoods and socio-economic infrastructure for displaced people and host communities in target areas of the territory of the Republic of Zambia, and (ii) support regional learning on development responses to forced displacement; 2) The inclusion of a new and fifth component to the Project to be funded by the AF (grant) to the ICGLR; 3) The revision of the Results Framework to include further indicators that pertain to the objectives and activities of the new fifth component (to be financed through a grant to the ICGLR) and revised PDO. 4) The addition of a new Recipient (which is also the additional implementing entity) to receive the additional grant and implement the activities under the relevant grant agreement: the ICGLR; and 5) Complementary changes to accommodate the additional grant and additional implementing agency including: an increase to Substantial, of the fiduciary risks associated with the original project to reflect additional fiduciary risks posed by the additional grant; the specification of financial management (FM), disbursement, and procurement arrangements for ICGLR, which will be further outlined in a specific Project Implementation Manual (PIM) for the new component.
