ADB approves $200 million loan for BISP

Islamabad (TP) October 7, 2019: The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved a $200 million loan as additional financing to help support Pakistan’s Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP), which supports more than 5 million eligible families across the country, said a press release issued here on Monday.
The BISP, considered one of the largest social protection programmes in South Asia, is part of a larger government strategy, called Ehsaas, to reduce poverty and inequality. BISP, which is primarily funded by the government of Pakistan, supports Ehsaas through cash transfers, poverty graduation programmes, and a targeted social safety net.
“The ADB-financed Social Protection Development Project, approved in October 2013, has enabled the enrollment of over 855,000 women beneficiaries to BISP, or about 15% of the eligible beneficiaries. The $200 million additional financing for this project will continue to support cash transfers as well as help BISP implement institutional strengthening measures,” the ADB said.
“Social protection programmes like the BISP are crucial to ensure that the poorest segments of the population do not go further into poverty, especially at a time when the country is facing difficult macroeconomic challenges,” said the Director of Public Management, Financial Sector, and Trade for ADB’s Central and West Asia Department Tariq Niazi.
“We are also committed to helping the government of Pakistan implement alternative modalities for social protection and poverty reduction such as asset transfer programs that promote improved human capital and reduce intergenerational poverty.”
“ADB’s additional financing will support further institutional strengthening and improvements in financial management and controls in BISP. A policy research unit will also be established within BISP to help monitor and improve the performance of ongoing programs and design new cost-effective and evidence-based initiatives such as poverty graduation programs and conditional cash transfers for health and nutrition in line with global best practices,” said ADB Country Director for Pakistan Ms Xiaohong Yang.
