Project Description

According to bank documents, the project objective is to provide temporary income support to extremely poor households and to put in place the building blocks of a social safety net system.

The proposed additional funding (AF2) aims at (a) scaling up Project activities in the cyclone and flood affected areas; (b) scaling up Project activities through the expansion of direct cash transfers to among vulnerable households; (c) cover costs overruns in the investments associated with the building of social protection instruments; and (d) support additional Project management, supervision, and incremental operating costs.

This AF2 builds on the Parent Project (including the AF1) which finances the following activities:

  1. Component 1: Institutional strengthening and capacity building to support the consolidation of the National Basic Social Security Strategy - enhance the capacity of MGCAS former MMAS and INAS to:
    1. implement, monitor, and evaluate the National Basic Social Security Strategy (ENSSB) as an integrated and permanent safety net system; and
    2. put the labor-intensive public works program into operation as an intervention within the Productive Social Action Program (PASP).
  2. Component 2: Labor-intensive Public Works - support to Beneficiaries in the Recipient's rural and urban areas, through the provision of timely and predictable supplemental income in return for their participation in labor-intensive public works activities ("Subprojects").
