    The Social Cash Transfer Secretariat of the Ministry of Gender and Development is responsible for the management of the National Social Cash Transfer Programme. As an element of the social protection system, a social cash transfers were piloted at programme level, in 2011. The number of pilot sites was to be scaled up from two to five (third of the 15 counties forming the administrative segments of the country). To achieve this scale-up individual, organisational and institutional capacities of the Secretariat need to be strengthened. Experts mobilised worked with their Liberian peers in an assessment of institutional capacities for this action, and to provide proposals both to improve the organisation Programme and strengthen the individual capacities of the Secretariat’s staff.
