Niger - Adaptive Social Safety Nets Project : additional financing (English)

The development objective of the Adaptive Social Safety Nets Project for Niger is to establish and support a safety nets system which will increase access of poor and food insecure households to cash transfer and cash for work programs. The additional financing (AF) was formulated during the midterm review of the parent project held in December 2014, in response to the government’s request for additional resources to: (a) strengthen the impact of the project on resilience; (b) cover a financing gap of United States (U.S.) 3.7 million dollars; and (c) expand the geographical scope of the project to address vulnerability in the regions of Niamey (the country’s administrative capital), as well as in the regions of Diffa and Agadez where the volatile security situation continues to contribute to poverty and vulnerability. As part of the AF, the parent project will be restructured to make the safety net system more adaptive, efficient, and responsive to strengthen the ability of poor and vulnerable households to respond to shocks and build their resilience.
