Project Description
The objective of the Social Safety Net Project (SSNP) for Madagascar is to support the Government in increasing the access of extremely poor households to safety net services and in laying the foundations for a social protection system. The AF will scale up the existing SSNP through cash transfers and community nutrition services to address some of the urgent needs of the poorest population suffering from the severe drought in the South of Madagascar, exacerbated by El Nino. On September 26, 2016, the Government of Madagascar declared a humanitarian emergency for the region and requested support from the international community, including the World Bank, to provide a rapid and effective response for the most affected population.
