According to bank documents:
"The Project Development Objective is to improve the equity, efficiency, transparency and shock-responsiveness of major safety net programs to benefit the poorest and most vulnerable households.
4 Components of the project include:
1) Support to Ministry of Disaster Management & Relief (MoMDR) Safety Net Programs,
2) Strengthening of MoDMR Program Administration and Shock-Responsiveness Development of the National Household Database
3) Development of the National Household Database.
with the additional financing for the project aimed at:
4) Strengthening Community Resilience with Employment Generation Program for the Poorest (EGPP+) (ie: scaling up of the EGPP),
5) Strengthening Community Resilience for the Displaced Rohingya Population (DRP). (ie: scaling up of community services/works program for the DRP.)"
New components 4 & 5 are introduced to address the negative impacts of the Rohingya crisis on both host communities and displaced Rohingya population (DRP) in Cox's Bazar and to ease tensions over perceived inequity between the DRP and host communities.
The EGPP will give households the ability to counter wage and price shocks therefore providing opportunities to host community and DRP, and have a replicable model for the Government to rollout in the event of future disasters or crises.
