Project Description

According to WB documents, the project aims to support the establishment of a basic national safety net system including piloting targeted cash transfers and public works programs for the poorest and most vulnerable people in participating areas within the recipient's territory. The project has the following components:

Component 1. Laying the Foundations of a Safety Net System and Supporting Project Management

Component 2. Cash Transfer Program with Accompanying Measures to Boost Household Productivity

Component 3. Public Works Program Pilot

The Additional Financing (AF) will expand the Social Safety Net established under the parent project, mainly in regions hosting refugees and at risk of refugee influx, as well as in new regions affected by poverty and fragility. The scaling up will (a) alleviate poverty and vulnerability in host communities, (b) integrate refugees into national social protection systems, and (c) build peace and improve living conditions in fragile regions.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF WORLD BANK

The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing ipanel@worldbank.org. You can learn more about the Inspection Panel and how to file a complaint at: http://ewebapps.worldbank.org/apps/ip/Pages/Home.aspx.
