The second component of the project is drought risk financing, aims to provide timely resources for transitory food insecurity in response to shocks within the existing program areas. This component will be financed using a contingent grant, which will provide resources for scaling up activities under component one in response to localized or intermediate weather or price-related shocks in PSNP woredas. The third component of the project is institutional support for the PSNP will support institutional strengthening activities focusing on: (i) program management at all levels; (ii) capacity building to fill any remaining gaps in general and those specific to the risk financing facility; (iii) monitoring and evaluation; and (iv) transparency and accountability. The fourth and the final component of the project is support to the HABP will finance a core set of interventions aimed at: (i) strengthening the delivery of demand-driven and market-oriented advice for household investments; (ii) improving the efficiency and effectiveness of financial service delivery to food insecure households; and (iii) supporting program management.
