Subcomponent 1.2. Provision of social services for vulnerable households and individuals (US$3 million). The AF will scale up its support to strengthen the resilience of individuals and households that have been directly and indirectly affected by the violence and insecurity and support their emotional and psychological recovery.
Component 2: Provision of livelihood and economic opportunities for IDPs and host communities (US$9.5 million equivalent): The proposed AF will scale up livelihoods support to both, vulnerable populations left behind during insurgency, as well as returning IDPs. Interventions will focus on provision of cash for work and restoration of agriculture and fisheries production in safe areas within the recently liberated districts.
