Regional: Updating and Improving the Social Protection Index

Sovereign Project | 44152-012

Summary

The Asian Development Bank s (ADB) Social Protection Strategy aims to support its developing member countries (DMCs) in their efforts to reduce poverty and vulnerability by providing effective social protection for the Asia and Pacific population. While most of the DMCs have social protection programs and policies, many of them have undertaken initiatives to expand the existing social protection systems over the recent years. Enhancing social protection remains an important policy imperative for most DMCs.
