The present intervention is related to the Emergency Humanitarian Aid to the Flood Victims of the Wilaya of Guidimakha. It was designed following the consequences of the last episode of drought followed by floods caused by heavy rains in August 2019. This intervention is a response to the official request for emergency assistance to the victims of the recent floods and to prevent major damages in the coming months, such as the increase of diseases related to malnutrition or lack of sanitation. It is part of an integrated short- and medium-term response programme by the government and will involve other technical and financial partners (TFPs). It is within this framework that the new Government plans to put in place preventive and decentralized measures that will enable it to respond to disasters in a more reactive and rapid manner. The action of the African Development Bank will help mitigate the impact of this natural disaster and prevent major physical, psychological and socio-economic damage in the coming months linked to malnutrition and lack of sanitation. This project will provide the Food Security Commission (CSA), which is responsible for coordinating emergency aid for food security, with sufficient provisions (shelter and food kits) to enable it to cope with the current emergency situation.
The objective of the Bank's intervention is to discover the urgent and basic needs in terms of food and shelter of the disaster-affected populations in the southern and south-eastern regions of the country.
The main beneficiaries of this intervention are the victims of floods in the Wilaya of Guidimakha. Taking into account the loss of all subsistence products, the damage caused in agricultural plots, the loss of livestock and the impact on the destruction of shops and other constructions and means of storing food products, each household in the affected areas will receive a food kit. Only 200 families have already been rescued by the Commissariat for Food Security (CSA), with a food kit and an emergency shelter kit. The CSA has a total distribution stock of 1,000 food kits and 100 emergency shelter kits. The estimated number of households in the affected areas totals 20,000.
