This project is a US$500,000 emergency relief operation for communities affected by 2006 drought and armyworm inversion in Tanzania. Relief assistance will be specifically targeted to the regions that have been hardest hit by the drought and armyworms through food distribution to households and vulnerable groups with poor crop production as a result of insufficient rainfall and destruction of the crop by the armyworms. It will also help households with no food at all and those with no other sources of income (remittances, wage labour, etc.) to purchase food and other basic needs.
The objective of the proposed Bank emergency humanitarian relief assistance is to contribute to the alleviation of the suffering caused to people as a result of the drought and the armyworms inversion in Tanzania.
Relief food assistance will target vulnerable individuals and households, including school children, with the primary objective of saving lives and preserving livelihoods. This includes vulnerable groups such as widows, orphans, female- and elderly-headed households without visible means of support.
