"The Additional Financing (AF) is being prepared under the global framework of the World Bank COVID-19 Response financed under the Fast Track COVID-19 Facility (FTCF). In response to the WHO declaration of the global pandemic, the FSM has triggered the CERC of the FSMIP to address urgent COVID-19 emergency response and preparedness needs. Uncommitted funds have been reallocated to the CERC from other components of FSMIP. FSM has applied the CERC funding to supply medical equipment, pharmaceuticals and personal protective equipment (PPE). The availability of funds in the CERC has enabled the rapid release of funds for this purpose."

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF WORLD BANK
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. You can learn more about the Inspection Panel and how to file a complaint at: https://www.inspectionpanel.org.
