Non-contributory social protection programmes in Latin America and the Caribbean database

This database has been developed by the Social Development Division of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) together with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), which financed the project "Sustainability of co-responsibility transfer programmes" (GER/001/09), and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), which financed the cooperation programme "Social protection and inclusion in Latin America and the Caribbean" (SWE/09/002). The "Time for equality: Strengthening the Institutional Framework of Social Policies" project (ROA 235-8) financed by the United Nations Development Account is contributing to the update of the information. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG) provided English translation of the contents of the database. The Inter-American Social Protection Network (IASPN) of the Organisation of American States (OAS) collaborated with data quality checks.

Data have been obtained from official country documents unless other sources are cited.
