Testing Branchless Banking To Deliver Cash Transfers in Nepal
PDF File Size: 335 KB | Download   
The Human Development Social Protection Pilot (HDSPP) is a sub-project of the joint UNDP-UNCDF Local Governance and Community Development Program (LGCDP).It has been initiated in two far-western districts in Nepal, Kanchanpur and Dhadheldura and it is being implemented by the Ministry of Federal Affairs and Local Development (MOFALD).The purpose of the HDSPP is to strengthen the capacity and role of central and local government in delivering social protection cash transfers through branchless banking and, within this context, to strengthen linkages between the education sector and local government accountability to citizens.When compared to countries of similar wealth and development, Nepal is well-advanced in the provision of safety net programmes. The Government of Nepal runs various cash based safety nets programs for the protection of vulnerable groups. Some of the nationwide programmes in Nepal are categorical cash transfers to elderly, single women, disabled, endangered ethnicities and children administered by the MOFALD and categorical scholarships administered by the Ministry of Education(MOE). However, the total coverage of cash transfer programs is not sufficient. In addition, nearly all record keeping and cash transfers are done manually.
