Angola - Strengthening the National Social Protection System Project (Inglês)

The objectives of the Strengthening the National Social Protection System Project in Angola are to provide temporary income support to poor households in selected areas of Angola, and to strengthen the delivery mechanisms for a permanent social safety net system. This project has three components: (1) Cash transfer program to poor households. The objective of this component is to design and implement the systems for a temporary cash transfer program that aims to mitigate the impact of the subsidy reform on poor populations (bottom two quintiles) with a goal of reaching one million households. Subcomponent 1.A is expected to increase the effectiveness of the social protection system by developing delivery systems that enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the social protection sector and allow Ministry for Social Action, Family and the Promotion of Women (Ministério da Acção Social, Familia e Promoção da Mulher) (MASFAMU) (especially the National Directorate for Social Assistance), FAS, and participating municipalities to better manage their programs. Subcomponent 1.B is a cash transfer program that is expected to provide cash transfers to one million households over one year. Beneficiaries would belong to the poorest 40 percent households in selected areas.(2)Development of a permanent safety nets system. The specific objective of this component is to strengthen the capacity of MASFAMU, FAS and partner institutions responsible for activities in social safety nets at the central, provincial and municipal levels to further build a proper safety nets system. Subcomponent 2.A consists of a communication strategy for the subsidy reform and the safety net programs. This sub-component is expected to increase the support for the subsidy reform and help broaden the political space for its implementation. Subcomponent 2.B is the establishment of an effective basic safety nets system, supporting investments in productive and human capital. This sub-component is expected to strengthen the poverty impacts of the safety net systems by helping address more structural characteristics of poverty. (3) Project management. This component will support the establishment of a dedicated project implementation support unit Project Implementation Support Unit (PISU) to support Social Support Fund (Fundo de Apoio Social)(FAS)and MASFAMU in implementing project activities. The component will also support targeted capacity building for the implementation of programs.
