Non-contributory social protection through a child and equity lens in Djibouti

In 2014 the government launched the Djibouti 2035 Vision, which included the objective of reducing extreme poverty rates by one third by 2035. To achieve this, Djibouti’s social protection strategy for 2012–2017 focuses on the expansion of social safety nets. The strategy includes the introduction of a social registry to improve targeting and determine the right type of assistance for the poorest and most vulnerable households.
