Emergency Humanitarian Relief Assistance to drought affected populations has been initiated in response to the increased and severe food insecurity facing the Kingdom of Eswatini. For the relief assistance, the Government of Eswatini through World Food Programme (WFP) proposes to purchase the following food-basket commodities: maize, pulses and oil. Due to urgency of the need, most cost effective procurement options with minimized lead times should be taken into consideration, prioitizing regional purchase. The African Development Bank (ADB)'s Grant should cover the purchase of 1, 062 mt of Maize, 265 mt of pulses and 96 mt of Oil. The total cost of the Bank’s emergency assistance is estimated at US$ 1,000,000. This Emergency assistance has three (03) components: i) procurement of food commodities; ii) Associated costs ( transport, handling, storage and distribution); and 3) WFP administrative fees.
The objective of the proposed Bank Group Emergency Relief Assistance to the Kingdom of Eswatini is to contribute to the on-going efforts of the Government and other humanitarian partners to save lives and protect livelihoods in the current crisis situation caused by the drought being experienced by the country.
The bénéficiaries are most vulnerable communities.
