The Centre for Social Protection at IDS, in collaboration with Rebret Business and Consultancy, has been asked by UNICEF Ethiopia to undertake a study assessing beneficiary and service provider perceptions and feedback of the Integrated Nutrition – Social Cash Transfer (IN-SCT) pilot in Ethiopia. This represents a qualitative study focusing on programme implementation and impact, particularly focusing on nutrition.
The objectives of this assessment are to:
- obtain feedback from clients and service providers regarding the implementation of the IN-SCT pilot,
- identify constraints and barriers in take up and provision of services, with a particular focus on co-responsibilities for Direct Support clients and behaviour change communication (BCC) for Public Works clients, and
- to provide recommendations for implementation during the remainder of the pilot and for future programming.
More broadly, this assessment aims to shed light on the feasibility of implementation of advice and BCC activities in a bid to provide more nutrition-sensitive social protection.
