According to bank provided information, the project objective is to increase coverage and effectiveness of the Takaful and Karama Cash Transfer program and enhance access of the poor and vulnerable to economic inclusion opportunities. Effectiveness is defined and measured by pro-poor targeting and intake registration in the TKP social registry.
The proposed project will build on the design of the ongoing SSSNP and aims to expand the overall coverage of T&K cash transfer, improve its pro-poor targeting and intake registration in the social registry and improve access to economic opportunities through FORSA program. As such, it will consist of four components: (i) Provision of Conditional and Unconditional Cash Transfers; (ii) Enhancing Delivery systems and institutional capacities; (iii) Economic Inclusion/Empowerment Services; and (iv) Project Management, Monitoring and Evaluation and Knowledge Management. The project is an Investment Project Financing (IPF) with performance-based conditions (PBCs). A brief description of project components is presented below.
Component 1: Provision of Conditional and Unconditional Cash Transfers (US$448.75 million). This component will support the provision of conditional and unconditional CTs to beneficiaries under the TKP using a resultsbased approach, with eligible expenditures comprising CTs.
Component 2: Enhancing Delivery systems and institutional capacities (US$22 million). This component will support enhancing the system building blocks including the targeting, quality and institutionalization of the TKP operational systems. It will support technical assistance (TA) and investment in the design and implementation of TKP operational systems.
Component 3: Economic Inclusion/Empowerment Services (US$25 million). This component will further build on the pilot FORSA program under the SSSNP drawing lessons learned from the recent IFPRI FORSA Baseline Evaluation.
Component 4: Project Management, Monitoring and Evaluation and Knowledge Management (US$3 million). This component will support project management including running cost of the PIU to ensure that the project is successfully and efficiently implemented consistent with the legal agreement. The component will finance: (i) salaries of PIU staff (non-civil servants); (ii) PIU equipment and operating costs, which are directly linked to the daily management of the project (office space, utilities and supplies, bank charges, communications, translation, transportation, maintenance and insurance, building and equipment maintenance costs, and travel and supervision costs); (iii) regular internal audits and annual external audits (audits of financial and procurement aspects according to the Bank’s legal requirements); and (iv) cost of independent evaluations and research/case studies including modules to measure beneficiary satisfaction of the program.
