Scoping and Sector Review of Social Protection in Somaliland

This Scoping Study and Sector Review presents a strategic analysis of the existing social policy landscape in Somaliland, aimed at informing the development of a Social Protection system for Somaliland and the formulation of a Social Protection Policy, by the end of 2020. In particular, this review focuses on Somaliland’s pilot Child-Sensitive Social Protection Programme (CSSP), within the context of Somaliland’s wider sector of social development, highlighting gaps in the current system with a forward-looking analysis of opportunities to invest in inclusive income support programmes and build the capacity of the Ministry of Employment, Social Affairs and Family (MESAF) for governance, coordination and delivery of core Social Protection schemes.
