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.
