Component 5 : Contingency Emergency Response

This component will provide urgent support to farmers and other stakeholders in the agricultural sector who have been affected by natural disasters. The specific activities that may be undertaken through this component will depend on the nature and scope of the disaster. The component will help to ensure that the agricultural sector is able to recover quickly and continue to play a vital role in local economies. This component allows for the use of funding from other project components to support the immediate identified activities. To access financing for activities under this component, a request must be made to the National Treasury. Once funding is secured, activities will be implemented according to the procedures outlined in the Immediate Response mechanism Operation Manual (IRM-OM).
