Project Description

According to bank documents, the project objective is to support Government efforts in building an effective social protection system that promotes social and productive inclusion, by (i) building effective delivery systems for outreach, targeting and program management; and (ii) supporting the expansion of the Rendimento Social de Inclusão Program (cash transfer program).

The project will be articulated around two main components:

  1. Strengthening Social Protection systems (US$ 3 million). The specific objective of this component is to enhance the capacity of MFIS and other institutions (municipalities) involved in the social protection sector to implement, monitor, and evaluate safety nets programs as an integrated and permanent safety net system.
  2. Expansion of the Rendimento Social de Inclusão (RSI) Program (US$ 7 million). The objective of this component is to scale up and improve targeting and efficiency of the Rendimento Social de Inclusão Program (RSI), which was designed and financed by the government of Cabo Verde in 2016/2017, and aims to provide
    1. cash transfers to very poor families;
    2. access to productive  inclusion initiatives to the same beneficiaries; and
    3. access to childcare services for very poor families.
