Proposals for reformEstablishment of a Single Registry

  • Setting up of a single registry for beneficiaries of social assistance to help in:

    • Managing social assistance programs in an integrated way

    • Enhancing the targeting performance of programs

    • Adopting a unified approach to welfare

    • Economic analysis and monitoring policies


Proposals for reform cont adopting a new method of targeting l.jpg

Proposals for reform cont’Adopting a new method of targeting

  • Present method of targeting is mainly based on income

  • New method of targeting based on a set variables other than income is being developed

  • New method of targeting will enable the Ministry of social security to properly identify the beneficiaries of cash transfer.

  • Other able bodied beneficiaries will be shifted to the newly created Ministry of Social Integration to be placed on the empowerment programs.

  • Single database will be managed by the Ministry of Social Security but will be shared with other Ministries and government institutions.

  • Profile of applicants will enable other Ministries to place them on their respective welfare programs.
