Evaluation of the Project to Develop an Integrated Social Protection Model in the Guidimagha Region of Mauritania (Final Report)

This formative evaluation was commissioned by 3 agencies (UNICEF, WFP, and ILO) in collaboration of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Promotion of Productive Sectors (MAEPSP) in the Guidimakha region, Mauritania.  It was carried out in 2022 and it covers the period of the joint implementation project 2020 – 2022 funded from the joint funds for SDGs. This final independent and formative evaluation of the "Project for Developing an Integrated Social Protection Model in the Guidimagha Region of Mauritania" is being undertaken to promote transparency, accountability and collective learning. It will first assess the achievements of the project, draw lessons learned and make recommendations that will better inform strategic decision-making on social protection programs in the country. In addition, it aims to generate knowledge about the integrated social protection approach tested in the Guidimakha region. It will also serve to analyze the factors of success or failure, opportunities and challenges for its scaling up in order to influence social policies and programs in the country.
