Abstract:As policymakers gradually (re-)assess social protection systems in the wider context of recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is becoming increasingly important to have clear information on country-level programmes. This Research Report examines the country’s existing non-contributory (social assistance) and (semi-)contributory (social insurance) social protection programmes.
