According to bank documents, the project objective is to provide income support and improve access to social services for poor and vulnerable Lebanese and Syrian refugees, increase employment opportunities for the extreme poor Lebanese, and develop the building blocks of Lebanon’s Social Safety Net (SSN) system.
The SSNSP is proposed as a multi-donor five-year program to provide income support and improve access to social services for poor and vulnerable Lebanese and Syrian refugees, increase employment opportunities for poor Lebanese, and develop the building blocks of the SSN system. Specifically, the program will seek to: (i) scale-up the NPTP for extreme poor Lebanese; (ii) provide, subject to availability of funding, social assistance to Syrian refugees; (iii) improve access to and quality of social and services for all vulnerable populations; and (iv) establish the building blocks of a SSN system foR MoSA programs in Lebanon. It is anticipated that the project would benefit from concessional financing of US$400 million, through IBRD (US$300 million) and the Global Concessional Financing Facility (GCFF) (US$100 million) for Components 1, 3 and 4. SSNSP is also a candidate to benefit from IDA18 funding to cover Component 2, which directly targets refugees, with a tentative allocation of US$75 million. This would bring the total proposed funding to US$475 million.
The project is proposed to consist of the following components:
