Comparing Social Protection Information Systems in Mali, Mauritania, and Niger

This document – commissioned under the BMZ/KFW-funded COVID19 response joint program (UNICEF-WFP) with the governments of Mali, Mauritania, and Niger – provides a high-level summary overview of the information system serving the social protection sector in the three countries. It is skewed towards the management of Social Registries, as these have been given policy priority in recent years, but also touches on the importance of the broader information system serving the social protection sector. The overview is based on three background case studies, conducted via in person Key Informant Interviews and document review over the course of 2022.
