|Overview : |
The Ministry of Poverty Eradication and Social Welfare (MPESW), based on a desk review has proposed the establishment of a Basic Income Grant (BIG), targeting the age group of 30-59 years who tend not to be covered by any of the current social grants. The Labour Force Survey of 2016, has indicated that the population for this targeted group stood at 143, 107 individuals. Based on a desk review conducted by the Ministry of Poverty Eradication and Social Welfare, a proposed a monthly disbursement of N$389.00 would then lead to an estimated cost to cover these individuals at N$668 million annually.
In view of Namibia’s current fiscal constraints, the challenge of improving coverage of social grants turns the country in the direction of due diligence of every proposal and thus a comprehensive feasibility study is sought for the development of the Basic Income Grant.
UNDP Namibia therefore invites applications from qualified individual consultants to undertake a comprehensive feasibility study in Namibia.
