Icon Our WorkAssessing Targeting Options for Nepal’s Social Grants – What Does The Evidence Tell Us?

The Government of Nepal and development partners have been working together to develop a stronger evidence base to inform thinking about social protection policy and support the implementation and scale up of social protection interventions.

The national development partners Social Protection Task Team aims to build and promote a Nepal-specific evidence base on key issues and interventions, including targeting methodologies, delivery systems and monitoring and evaluation in order to inform key policy and programmatic decisions. This paper arises from DFID’s desire to support the achievement of this objective and is part of DFID’s broader global commitment to understand what works in social protection.

This discussion paper is the first in a series of papers that aim to fill the evidence gaps in Nepal by situating the country’s experiences within a wider international context.
