The World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors today approved a $40 million International Development Association (IDA*) grant for the benefit of the people of South Sudan. The South Sudan Safety Net Project (SSSNP) will expand access to safety net and provide income security for low income South Sudanese, while strengthening delivery tools and local level capacities.

Since 2014, the World Bank has provided safety net support to South Sudan through investment targeted at poor and vulnerable households. It also helped to establish the building blocks of a national social protection system for effective and accountable delivery of safety net assistance while mitigating high operational, fiduciary and safeguards risks in the country
