Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to the bank, the proposed project aims to improve access to markets and climate-smart practices and contribute to the economic inclusion of targeted beneficiaries in select agricultural value chains. Innovation, defined as approaches that are new and/or different for project beneficiaries, will play an important role in achieving this objective in the form inter alia of practices, technologies, and systems. Moving beyond a focus on specific value chain nodes or aspects, the project will promote competitive improvements along the full spectrum of backward and forward value chain linkages.
The indicators used by the bank to evaluate the project are: 

Number of beneficiaries (farmers and agri-entrepreneurs) adopting climate-smart practices promoted by the project, disaggregated by gender, youth, Indigenous, Afro-descendants (“climate-smart” indicator) • New jobs created under subprojects financed by the project (“economic inclusion” indicator) • Percentage increase in the value of gross sales of agricultural enterprises based on implementation of the business plans approved in the first 3.5 years of project implementation (“access to markets” and “economic inclusion” indicator) • Percentage of rural producer organizations (RPOs) working under a productive alliance approach 24 months after first disbursement (“sustainability” and “access to markets” indicator)

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.


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 You can learn more about the Inspection Panel and how to file a complaint at:
