Responding to COVID-19 through Social Protection Systems in the Sahel: Towards addressing the socioeconomic impacts of multiple shocks (2023 Annual Report)

WFP and UNICEF jointly implement the ‘Responding to COVID-19 through Social Protection Systems in the Sahel: Towards addressing the socioeconomic impacts of multiple shocks’ project as support to the Governments of Mali, Mauritania, and Niger to respond to the immediate massive needs generated by the COVID-19 pandemic and other shocks through cash transfers and complementary services. The project also works to strengthen overall national capacities to adapt and build more shock-responsive, nutrition- and child-sensitive social protection systems in the long term. The joint project is financed by BMZ through KfW.
