Development Pathways is pleased to share our latest Pathways’ Perspective, Single Registries and Social Registries: Clarifying the Terminological Confusion, by Richard Chirchir and Shez Farooq.

Richard Chirchir and Shez Farooq seek to clarify two key terms, Single Registry and Social Registry, which are potential elements of an integrated system for information management within social protection sector. This is in response to growing terminological confusion and, in particular, significant misunderstandings about two very different types of registries.

They argue that single registries are more complex and can be linked to a wide range of types of social protection programmes, while social registries, in contrast, have the limited purpose of simplifying the targeting of household-based social assistance programmes.
