Reducing poverty through activation and better targeting

The crisis revealed the need for a strategic review of the existing social protection system. Extreme income fluctuations on one side and low social benefits on the other side exposed fragile groups in the population to a significant poverty risk. The government has recently commissioned several studies to prepare a systematic reform of the system. The spectrum of options is wide and includes increased generosity, further efficiency gains, strengthening incentives, better access to services and, in particular, more ambitious activation.
