Slide presentation from the webinar, held on 28 November 2017, which presented the main findings of an overview of non-contributory social protection programmes in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region through a child lens, carried out by the International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG) and UNICEF Middle East and North Africa Regional Office. The presentation provides an updated picture of non-contributory social protection in the region, presenting the most prevalent programme types, targeted population groups as well as targeting mechanisms, among other relevant features. The presenters also show the programmes’ main child-sensitive design features, demonstrating how different schemes can enhance children’s access to health, education and nutrition. This is the first webinar of our new MENA Project Webinar Series on social protection in the MENA region.
