COVID-19 Series: Support for an emergency cash transfer in Bangladesh in response to COVID-19

This report aims to provide preliminary practical ideas and suggestions for DFID-Bangladesh to consider as it engages with the Government of Bangladesh in rolling out an emergency cash transfer in response to COVID-19.

The Government of Bangladesh is developing and building on the country’s social protection system through the introduction of the emergency cash transfer in the face of COVID-19. The intention is to support the informal economy in urban areas as well as to better equip the system to respond to future shocks.

This report provides suggestions on the considerations of eligibility, identification and registration, payments and delivery, and data management.
