Social Protection System Review

A Toolkit

image of Social Protection System Review

The positive impacts of social protection on reducing poverty and inequality and contributing to development are well evidenced. Establishing an integrated system facilitates the provision of a social protection floor, whereby individuals are appropriately protected throughout the life cycle. This is achieved not only by making sure there is a sufficient range of programmes to cover a population’s risk profile but also by sharing information on different individuals to ensure they are linked to an appropriate programme.

The Social Protection System Review is one of a small number of tools that serve to analyse how effective a country is in establishing a social protection system that responds to the needs of its people both today and in the future. The toolkit presents methodologies which can be implemented in any country, at any income level and by any institution. It is intended to generate policy recommendations that are actionable through national systems.

Assessment of sustainability (Module 4)

OECD Development Centre

This chapter presents tools to analyse the long term financial sustainability of the social protection system. It gives guidelines for a dual analysis that takes into account both the expenditure and revenue side, focusing on the spending dynamics of social protection sector and its constituent programmes for the former and on resources available and how these are generated for the latter. The last part of the module suggests fiscal incidence analysis to combine the revenue and expenditure sides, and to calculate the impact of the existing system of taxes and transfers on equality and poverty.
