Review of social protection system in Albania: Coverage, expenditure, adequacy and financing

Within the framework of this Joint UN Programme “Catalysing Municipal Social Protection”, the ILO, in collaboration with UNICEF and UNWOMEN, has conducted a review of the social protection system in Albania with a view to identifying gaps in coverage and financing of the existing system, and analyzing the fiscal space for building a comprehensive social protection system including national social protection floors.

The present report provides an overview of the current national social protection systems, both contributory and non-contributory, and assesses their recent trends and performance with respect to the structure and level of social expenditure, beneficiary coverage and adequacy, contributor coverage, and financial sustainability.
