Social Protection: lessons for the decade ahead
Governments in low and middle income countries are recognising what social protection can achieve. Whilst some are strengthening their programmes, others remain wary of the fiscal and social implications. Seminar presentations and discussions offered ideas on how the concept of social protection has evolved, what the key themes for research and action are, and what the best ways forward may be in Africa.
