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.

Social protection lies at the heart of inclusive development and holds the key to unlocking a number of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular SDG 1: The end of poverty in all its forms, everywhere. It is also increasingly recognised as an essential human right and a prerequisite for sustainable societies. The importance of social protection is reflected in the large number of countries at all income levels that are establishing social protection programmes, often with the support of the international development community.
