Objectifs du programme

The development objective of Second Niger Adaptive Safety Net Project is to improve the capacity of the Niger adaptive safety nets system to respond to shocks and to provide access for poor and vulnerable people to safety nets and accompanying measures.

Composantes du programme
The component (i) Cash Transfers and Accompanying Measures, has the following three subcomponents: (a) Cash transfers; (b) Accompanying measures; and (c) Cash transfers for shock response. The component (ii) Cash for Work for Resilience, aims to support the implementation of Cash for Work (CfW) programs, which will provide additional income to people in communities affected by food insecurity caused by persistent or recurrent weather and climate change-related shocks.
(i) Cash transfer: The first cycle of monthly cash transfers over 24 months for 27,781 and a new cycle for 60,000 new beneficiary households from 2022. (ii) Cash for work: 11,186 people benefit from in CFW interventions (5,950 men and 5,236 women) (iii) The satellite-based drought response pilot program is extending monthly support to 15,400 drought-affected beneficiary households in four communes (Tchaké, Tagazar, Dan Tchandou and Imanan).

Ciblage et éligibilité

Régions ciblées
Nationwide. There are four priority regions identified namely Diffa, Maradi, Tillabery, and Zinder. A geographical targeting protocol for the cash transfer was defined to identify the department of intervention within the eight regions and allocate the number of beneficiaries of the cash transfers to be covered. The number of beneficiaries in each region, and the selection of departments and communes were based on the number of poor, food insecure people, and vulnerability to schocks.
Critère d'éligibilité
The selection of departments in each region is based on three geographical targeting criteria: poverty, food insecurity, and vulnerability to shocks. In each region, the departments whose poverty rate is above the regional median as well as departments in which the share of severe and moderate food insecurity exceeds 20 percent are selected. A composite index of geographic vulnerability to climate shock has been defined using Principal Component Analysis (PCA) technique. The PCA-based approach to vulnerability mapping does not provide absolute measures of vulnerability. It indicates the spatial patterns of relative vulnerability related to the occurrence of individual drivers of vulnerability. The composite index of shocks integrates (a) indicators of rainfall and NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) anomalies to capture the recurrence of drought events, (b) an indicator of price shock, (c) the ratio of cereal use for consumption to domestic production at the department level, and (d) the vulnerability score given by the DN annually to each department. All the departments whose vulnerability index is above the 80th percentile are included in the project. BENEFICIERY ELIGIBILITY: (i) For the cash transfer program, beneficiary households will be selected after collection of basic data using an USR questionnaire, application of a Proxy Means Test (PMT), and community validation. (ii) The interested individuals will be invited to apply and information on applications will be collected based on the Unified Social Registry (USR) questionnaire. In case of oversubscription, a PMT will be applied and the final list of beneficiaries will be validated by the community.

Couverture et autres informations

Montant des bénéfices
(i) Cash transfer: CFAF 15,000 per household per month (ii) Cash for work: The daily wage rate in the public works program has been set at CFAF 1,300. (iii) In the event of a drought, the cash transfers will be scaled up vertically (top-up the existing benefit) and horizontally (including new beneficiaries at the rate of CFAF 15,000 per household per month for 12 months)
