Productive Safety Net Program (PSNP)
The World Bank, Ethiopia; Cluster 7, 8, and 9 Productive Safety Net Program (PSNP) Beneficiary House Hold (BHH) Registry Primary Data Collection (January 2020-Ongoing):
Launched in 2005, the Productive Safety-Net Programme (PSNP) is an important policy initiative by the Ethiopian government and donors to shift millions of chronically food-insecure rural people from recurrent emergency food aid to a more secure and predictable, and largely cash-based, form of social protection. Cluster 7 PSNP includes four zones in Oromia, namely Bale, Borena, Bule Hora, and Guji administrative zones. The overall objectives of the PSNP BHH Registry Primary Data Collection are to collect key information regarding demographic, social, and economic characteristics of PSNP BHHs and all members within their household through a high-quality door-to-door survey that covers 100% of current active PSNP beneficiary households in all kebeles and woredas assigned. The study will also create a complete and clean electronic database of PSNP BHHs including all information collected through the survey.
