According to bank documents, the project objective is to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the nationwide adaptive social safety net system and its coverage of poor and vulnerable households with targeted social transfers, including in refugee and host communities.
The US$13 million AF will provide the opportunity to mitigate the dual impacts of COVID-19 and climate-related shocks for vulnerable households in 2021. Therefore, upcoming safety net interventions
will seek to support vulnerable households to help them to cope with the cumulative impacts of COVID19 and the climate shock. The AF will exclusively support the scale-up of existing activities included in the Parent Project. The original PDO, the closing date, the components and sub-components will remain the same. The results framework will be revised to reflect the scaling-up on the indicator targets, but no additional indicators will be introduced.
More specifically, the proposed AF will finance the scale-up of the shock-responsive programs as follows: (i) support the implementation of the Elmaouna program; (ii) pilot an extension of the Tekavoul program in case of shocks. The original project planned to support an average of 8,000 vulnerable households per year for the first three years of the project (2021 to 2023), either through the Elmaouna program or through the Tekavoul expansion option. The additional financing will allow Elmaouna and Tekavoul to support an additional 36,000 households (27,000 and 9,000 additional households respectively).
