Project Description
The objectives of the Social Safety Net Project are to support the establishment of building blocks for the social safety net system and to provide targeted cash transfers to poor and vulnerable households. The Additional Financing (AF) aims to scale up the existing project and strengthen the foundations it has established for the social protection system (through a national registry and a nationwide conditional cash transfer program that reaches all localities). It will also introduce adaptive elements in the social protection system to make poor households more resilient to shocks, including the design of procedures to scale up support in times of regular shocks and to promote greater resilience and productive capacity among the poorest, as well as the temporary expansion of transfer programs for households affected by shocks (temporary transfers), the preferential inclusion of poor households in existing resilience programs, the provision of activities to promote behavioral changes necessary to improve resilience, and the provision of one-off monetary transfers to promote the adoption of good productive practices among target households.
