The ADF grant of UA 15 million to the G5 Sahel Secretariat for its member countries (Burkina Faso, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Chad) is to finance the exceptional and emergency regional operation to combat COVID-19 in G5 Sahel countries. A grant of UA 1 million from TSF Pillar III resources has been approved by RDVP to finance the operation. This is a regional project that will be implemented as a Regional Public Good (RPG) over a period of 18 months from June 2020 to December 2021. This project falls within the framework of the COVID-19 Rapid Response Facility.
The project’s overall goal is to build the capacity of the G5 Sahel countries to curb and stop the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to boost the resilience of vulnerable communities. Its specific objectives are to: (i) build epidemiological surveillance and case management capacity; (ii) ensure the availability of medical products for the prevention, control and treatment of COVID-19; (iii) ensure the implementation of social protection measures in target communities, including refugees and IDPs; (iv) enhance the resilience of food and nutrition systems, and (v) ensure communication and coordination. The expected outcomes are: (i) the countries have the capacity required for effective health response; (ii) communities have the resilience to cope with the socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic; and (iii) the G5 Sahel Executive Secretariat is provided with resources to improve its capacity to deliver and coordinate activities.
The project beneficiaries comprise all people in the G5 Sahel zone (Burkina Faso, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Chad),as well as those in neighbouring countries. Overall, the project will directly benefit the people in the G5 Sahel zone, more than 50% of whom are women.
