Project Description

The development objective of the Social and Economic Inclusion Project for Kenya is to strengthen delivery systems for enhanced access to social and economic inclusion services and shock-responsive safety nets for poor and vulnerable households. It has three component. First component, Strengthening Social Protection Delivery Systems will support the enhancement of the existing Social Protection (SP) delivery systems established under the ongoing National Safety Net Program (NSNP) and will aim to further consolidate the Consolidated Cash Transfer Program (CCTP) 25 under the State Department of Social Protection (SDSP), and Hunger Safety Net Programme (HSNP) under the National Drought Management Authority (NDMA), within a consistent and coherent delivery system. Second component, Increasing Access to Social and Economic Inclusion Interventions will contribute to the Government of Kenya (GoK’s) goal of universal health coverage by establishing and supporting a functional referral mechanism to improve NSNP beneficiaries access to the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) and expand nutrition-sensitive safety net services to additional counties; and Third component, Improving the Shock Responsiveness of Safety Net System will support the NDMA to expand HSNP coverage and improve the shock responsiveness of the safety net system, including financing arrangements for timely support to vulnerable households affected by climate induced risks.
