Targeting Ethiopia's Productive Safety Net Programme (PSNP)

Research report

Research report

This report reviews the targeting design, implementation and outcomes of the Productive Safety Net Programme (PSNP) in its first year to eighteen months of operation. This period covers the whole of the first annual cycle of targeting and distribution, and the beginning of the second. The findings are based on qualitative
fieldwork and a household survey in eight woredas (two in each of the four main PSNP regions), on extensive key informant interviews, and on a review of secondary sources. The study focuses on how (and how well) the targeting system is working, and on practical recommendations for improvement.
