Afghanistan - Pension Administration and Safety Net Project (English)

This project paper provides a grant to the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan for a Pension Administration and Safety Net Project. The grant will help finance the costs associated with modernization of the public pension system administration and design and implementation of a basic safety net pilot program. The project will support specific objectives of the Afghanistan National Development Strategy (ANDS) toward implementing a modern and financially sound pension system and developing a targeted safety net scheme. It will also lay the institutional groundwork for implementing future initiatives in social protection. The grant will finance investments and technical assistance for: (i) improving administration of the public pension system, and (ii) piloting a modest social safety net scheme as a first step in starting to develop a sustainable approach to safety nets in Afghanistan. Furthermore, the grant will contribute to strengthening program planning and administration in the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs, Martyrs and Disabled (MoLSAMD).
