Sahel Adaptive Social Protection Program Annual Report 2018 (English)

The Sahel Adaptive Social Protection Program (SASPP) supports the design and implementation of adaptive social protection programs and systems in six Sahel countries: Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, and Senegal. The SASPP was launched in 2014 and is funded by a multidonor trust fund (MDTF) managed by the World Bank Social Protection and Jobs Global Practice. The trust fund has major contributions from the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID), Agence Française de Développement (AFD), and a forthcoming contribution from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). This report summarizes progress made by the program during fiscal year 2018 (FY18), July 1, 2017, to June 30, 2018. This report is structured as follows. Chapter two presents the motivation for and objective of the SASPP, explaining how it is guided by a theory of change, its main modalities for engagement and primary priorities for the next fiscal year and beyond. Chapter three summarizes the main achievements undertaken in each country and by the regional program during FY18. Chapter four presents the work plans for the country and the regional programs for FY19. Chapter five provides a narrative overview of the results framework, explaining progress toward each of the SASPP results indicators during FY18 (detailed in tabular form in appendix A). Chapter six closes the report with a financial report for the SASPP through to the beginning of FY19.
