Cabo Verde - Social Inclusion Project (English)

The objective of the Social Inclusion Project for Cabo Verde is to support the Recipient's efforts in building an effective social protection system that promotes social and productive inclusion. There are three components to the project, the first component being strengthening the recipient’s social protection systems. 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 system. This component includes two subcomponents: building permanent systems to implement social protection programs and expanding the Unified Social Registry. The second component is the expansion of the RSI Program. The objective of this component is to scale up and improve targeting and efficiency of the RSI Program, which was designed, financed and piloted by the Government of Cabo Verde in 2017-2018, and aims to provide: (i) cash transfers to very poor families; (ii) access to productive inclusion initiatives to the same beneficiaries; and (iii) access to care services for very poor families. This component includes two subcomponents: cash transfers to poor households with children, and support to productive and social inclusion of RSI beneficiaries. Finally, the third component is the support to project management. This component will directly finance the costs associated with the fiduciary management of the project and the staff required to oversee coordination and project monitoring and evaluation. Per the agreement with the Ministry of Finance, all technical aspects of World Bank-financed projects are to be handled by the respective ministries while all fiduciary aspects are to be handled by the Unit for Management of Special Projects (Unidade de Gestão de Projectos Especiais, UGPE). The UGPE is an entity that is shared across projects and each project is responsible for contributing resources to cover shared costs such as UGPE staff, operating costs (i.e., rental space, transportation, utilities, etc.), external audits, etc. In addition, the project will also recruit a project manager to be based at UGPE to coordinate between the UGPE, MFIS and municipalities, and liaise effectively with UGPE and technical teams at MFIS regarding fiduciary aspects.
