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 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"). The subproject typologies include, among others, the following:
    1. rehabilitation and maintenance of existing roads, bridges and public buildings involving gardening, the maintenance and cleaning of parks and beaches, clearing of roads and pathways and the cleaning of road drains;
    2. building, cleaning, and maintenance of sanitation and other community infrastructure involving sewage maintenance, septic well development, water catchment infrastructure building and maintenance, and the rehabilitation of schools and health centers; and (iii) construction or maintenance of silos or other agriculture-related logistics infrastructure aiming at improving the marketing and storage capacity of farmers.
  3. Component 3: Direct Cash Transfers. This component will provide essential support to households through direct cash transfers. Moreover, the AF2 will expand the geographical scope on Component 3, to 115,000 households in the areas affected by the cyclone and floods associated to cyclones Idai and Kenneth, to additional 15 districts in Sofala, Manica and Cabo Delgado.
