It is delivered in partnership with Action Against Hunger (AAH)). The programme is being implemented in close collaboration with state governments and is aimed at reducing the prevalence of stunting and improving food security. The overall anticipated outcome is: A scalable programme showing how cash transfers can bring cost-effective immediate and long-term food security and nutrition benefits to eligible households with young children in poor communities in northern Nigeria:
  • Output 1: Secure payments mechanism providing regular, timely cash transfers to pregnant  women and women with under-2s
  • Output 2: Effective system for mobilisation, targeting and delivering complementary interventions established.
  • Output 3: Enhanced government capacities for and engagement in managing social protection and cash transfers in focus states.
  • Output 4: Evidence of cash transfer modalities and impacts provided to policymakers and practitioners at State and Federal levels.
DFID, SCI and AAH, through the CDGP, aim to secure increased political and institutional commitment by the Zamfara and Jigawa state governments to implement effective state-wide social protection to deliver improved nutrition, food security and poverty reduction for women and children at scale. 

The CDGP is accompanied by an independent evaluation that will provide rigorous evidence on impact that will be used at a variety of stages through the life of the programme to influence Zamfara and Jigawa state governments to adopt and scale up state-wide the approaches used in CDGP.  The programme also aims to inform the design and roll out of the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP) and specifically their flagship programme, National Social Safety Net programme (NSSNP).

Objective and Overview of the Consultancy
  • The CDGP was designed as a learning programme expected to produce evidence of programme impact as well as deliver lessons on how the programme delivery could be strengthened.
  • In this universally targeted programme it is expected that communities that are benefitting from the programme would have residents that are disabled and eligible to enrol in the CDGP.

  • Conduct an assessment of disability in the program in both states. The assessment would include adults and children in our programme areas and would use the Washington Group of Questions (modified to the Nigerian environment) for the adults, and child development milestones for children
  • Conduct mapping in the five LGAs to enable CDGP to refer beneficiaries for addressing identified needs that are disability specific
  • Train SCI Country Office and CDGP staff on disability and build capacity
  • Potentially there may be an opportunity for a fourth objective which is to support NSSNP in designing and integrating disability in their program.
Expected Deliverables
  • A working definition of Disability in CDGP Assessment report
  • Frameworks for assessing and managing beneficiaries living with disabilities
  • A training that will cover the main objectives of the disability framework
  • Pilot training/workshop.
