MSC has conducted research to gain insights into the implementation and impact of government-to-people (G2P) programs in South Asia. With lessons from these countries, we have worked closely with governments in other developing countries, such as Indonesia, Nigeria, Tanzania, and Bangladesh. Our research work in this area has primarily included program assessments, program monitoring, and district readiness assessments for G2P.

MSC’s research designs cover all aspects of G2P, starting with the theory of change and results framework, to a special focus on key areas as identified by the governments. Our focus areas include:

  • Identification of problems with cash withdrawals;
  • Benchmarking indicators of success;
  • Gender-responsive program design assessment;
  • Customer grievance resolution;
  • Examination of risks and mitigation measures.

MSC supported the Government of India to explore pathways to better nutritional outcomes through the National Food Security Act. We have quantitatively assessed the nutritional food basket of households under NFSA, analyzed gaps in the nutritional requirements of food scarce households, and developed recommendations to achieve nutritional goals at the household-level.
