According to bank documents, the project objective is to improve the performance of targeted small agriculture producers and AgriMSMEs and improve natural resources management practices in selected project areas.
A new Improving FNS component will be included in the project as its fifth component and will have three subcomponents.
New Subcomponent 5.1: Small infrastructure. This subcomponent will finance the following:
Rehabilitation of irrigation schemes.
Rehabilitation of rural roads.
Construction/installation of boreholes and water tanks.
New Subcomponent 5.2: Support to small farmers, livestock breeder, and fishermen. This subcomponent will finance the following:
Provision of agricultural kits/seeds.
Provision of hermetic bags, installation of family silos.
Provision of small equipment/tools.
Building of small livestock infrastructure.
Provision of equipment for the veterinary lab in Tete.
Provision of diagnostic consumables to the veterinary service in Nampula.
Establishment of a small ruminant scheme.
Fisheries and aquaculture.
New Subcomponent 5.3: Implementing a local approach to improve nutrition. This subcomponent will finance the following:
Training in utilization of local products for enhanced nutrition security.
Mobile nutrition kitchens.
Changes in Subcomponent 3.1. The allocation to subcomponent 3.1 (Policy and institutional support) will be increased to finance strengthening of SETSAN. SETSAN is the national authority responsible for updating the status of acute and chronic FNS in rural, urban, and peri-urban areas of the country. More specifically, it is in charge of assessing the progress achieved and the status of chronic food insecurity and of chronic malnutrition for children between 0 and 5 years. There is an urgent need to improve SETSAN’s ability to collect and analyze data in IPC protocols and its capabilities to cover all districts in the country. SETSAN should also become capable to analyze the impact of past FNS interventions on the ground, to ensure the monitoring of ongoing FNS interventions, produce training material, and develop sound communication material in case of shocks/emergencies.
Provide the necessary hardware and software capacity to SETSAN.
Strengthen the existing early warning System within SETSAN.
Emergency Preparedness Plans.
Implement a new baseline study.
Implement post-shock FNS situation assessments.
Implement recurrent (annual) post-harvest FNS situation assessment.
Changes in Subcomponent 2.1 (USD 4.0 million): Subcomponent 2.1 - Enhanced land, forests, and conservation area management (with a current allocation of US$18.0 million under the parent project) will be increased by USD 4.0 million to include the EnABLE program supporting the ZILMP implementation. Activities will be implemented in three of the ZILMP districts with the highest emissions in the landscape namely: Mocuba, Alto Molócué and Gilé. The selection criteria was based on: i) forest cover (%), ii) Deforestation rate (%), iii) districts with CBOs that are legalized or being legalized, and iv) districts with CBOs that benefited from regularization of land tenure security, territorial planning at the community level and promotion of tools for integrated management of landscapes such as RDUAT5 and DELCOM6. These 3 districts are responsible for 69% of emissions in the landscape in the period of 2018 to 2020. Additionally, these 3 districts, especially Mocuba and Gilé, contain a significant proportion of the forest area of the landscape (49%) and are the ones that exceeded their historical emissions in the 2019/2020 period, and as a result should be the priority for improvement of enabling conditions for the reduction of deforestation.
Changes in Subcomponent 3.2. Subcomponent 3.2. The allocation ofr program management will be increased to finance the incremental operational costs linked to the implementation of the new component introduced under the AF.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE 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 email@example.com.
