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 expand and improve the efficient provision of cash assistance to Sudanese households to mitigate the effects of
expected economic reform and ongoing economic hardships.

The project’s objectives are to assist the Government of Sudan to effectively provide cash transfers to the targeted population to mitigate the effects of the expected economic stabilization. To this end, the proposed Project would include three components

  1. Provide cash transfers to selected household. This component will finance cash transfers to selected households. The program would provide cash transfers of about US $5 per person per month to approximately 80 percent of the population.

  2. Establish delivery systems and institutional capacity. This component supports establishing delivery systems and build institutional capacity. The component will provide financing for outreach and registration, enrollment, beneficiary verification, payment delivery, grievance redress, monitoring, and capacity-building. This would also establish operational procedures, a SFSP beneficiary database, and a Management Information System (MIS). The component would also strengthen the government’s institutional capacity to manage and implement the program, including support to expansion and referral to the permanent social safety net and complementary services.

  3. Learning from the program. This component will support project management, monitoring, evaluation and learning from the program.
