Project General Description

This emergency humanitarian aid for assistance to displaced populations in the territories of Malemba Nkulu (Katanga province) is a response to the call for assistance from the Congolese authorities to the international community and the African Development Bank in order to provide emergency assistance to internally displaced populations in their own country as a result of the crisis in eastern DRC. The operation should consist of financing the acquisition of food products and their transport, storage and distribution to the intervention area. The delivery of humanitarian goods in the DRC faces significant challenges related to the poor state of logistics infrastructure, the development of all modes of transport is essential, but faces mismanagement and lack of investment of existing infrastructure. The activities envisaged are divided into two components, namely: 1) purchase, transport, storage and distribution of food products (maize flour, pulses, transport and storage costs); and 2) the management of emergency assistance. The total requirement for this project is estimated at approximately USD 2.12 million. The Bank Group's contribution to the financing of the operation is estimated at USD 1,000,000 net of tax.

Project Objectives

The objective of this emergency aid operation is to urgently provide food aid rations to internally displaced populations in Malemba Nkulu territory.
