Social Protection Landscape and Perspectives: Comprehensive National Social Protection and Reforms Country Profiles for ESCWA Member States

This self-explanatory Template is intended to provide government officials in ESCWA member States with hands-on guidance allowing them to produce comprehensive national Social Protection and Reforms Country Profiles. These will not merely provide policymakers with a detailed and comprehensive baseline of their respective social protection systems in terms of design, delivery mechanisms, and organizational set-up, but will also chart out reform needs and options vis-a-vis international best practices and provide a standardized basis for cross-country comparison and learning. The Country Profiles will also include the relevant legal and institutional frameworks as well as an appraisal of the financing context of social protection schemes. The drafting process will furthermore involve a range of stakeholders and serve as an opportunity to improve coordination and collaboration.
