Poverty-targeted and proxy means tested social protection programmes have been encouraged by the @WorldBank through harmful social registries, which should perhaps be titled 'targeting databases'. You can read more in @MatthewGreensl2's new article: https://www.brettonwoodsproject.org/2024/04/beyond-the-world-bank-the-fight-for-universal-social-protection-in-the-global-south/

POLICY ADVICE

We provide evidence-based policy and strategic advice on social and economic challenges to Governments, international organisations, and other development partners. We support social development and work on ageing, child rights, gender, disability and in humanitarian contexts.

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT

We develop custom-built management information systems for social protection schemes. Our team understands the code as well as the context, so that we can take our clients through the whole journey – from design, all the way to user training and support.

DATA & RESEARCH

We develop evidence on poverty, vulnerability and on humanitarian issues, and solutions to address them. Our analyses are always grounded in data and innovative methodologies. They inform policy dialogue and help shape social and economic programmes.

PROGRAMME DESIGN

In designing cash transfer programmes, we generate practical and feasible solutions and take a rights-based approach. We have global experience in the technical and operational design of cash transfers, building blocks towards inclusive life-cycle social protection.

INCLUSIVE SOCIAL PROTECTION TRAINING

Convincing policymakers and development partners to invest in inclusive, lifecycle social protection can be challenging.

EVALUATION

We support governments and their development partners to monitor and evaluate their policies in order to accurately measure impacts and accountably track progress towards national and global goals.
