Open government data of Swedish aid

Titre : Sudan Family Support Program

Pays : Soudan

Date : 2020-2022

Agence : Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency
Implementing organisation : World Bank Group (WB)
The World Bank will implement the Sudan Family Support Program together with the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning and the Digital Transformation Agency

The World Bank has applied to Sida for funding to carry out the "Sudan Family Support Program" (SFSP) during the period 2020-2022. The objective of the intervention is to "deliver cash transfer support to Sudanese households affected by expected economic reforms and other short-term shocks". Under the SFSP, 80 % of the Sudanese population will receive cash transfers (5 USD a month over 12 months), in order to create political and fiscal space to implement the economic reforms. The economic reforms, primarily lifting of subsidies on fuel, are expected to have an adverse impact on the Sudanese economy, and the cash transfers under the SFSP will mitigate the economic shock of the subsidy removal. Further, the SFSP will also constitute an important step for Sudan towards debt relief under the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Initiative, and will also help stabilize the Sudanese economy. Sida’s support to the SFSP will also be an important endorsement of Sudan’s current transition towards democracy.

Total committed amount : USD 21,716,234
The total budget of the intervention is 2.07 billion USD, out of which the World Bank contributes with approximately 410 million USD. Donors have currently pledged around 415 million USD to the SFSP, and further funding rounds are to be expected. Other donors include Germany, the UK, the EU, Norway, Ireland, Italy, France, Spain, Canada, the Netherlands, Malta, the UAE and Saudi Arabia. 1.9 billion of the total budget will be forwarded from the World Bank to the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning. Sida plans to support the Sudan Family Support Program with a contribution of 200 MSEK. In addition, approximately 25.5 MSEK from Sida’s, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, and the Ministry for Environment’s respective Donor Balance Accounts have been reallocated to SFSP. The Swedish contribution to the SFSP thus totals approximately 225.5 MSEK.
