Regional: Assessing and Monitoring Social Protection Programs in Asia and the Pacific

Sovereign Project | 47215-001

Summary

Provision of social protection is recognized as the third pillar of ADB's inclusive growth agenda under Strategy 2020. Approved in December 2013, the SPOP aims to operationalize ADB's Social Protection Strategy and align it with Strategy 2020. The operational plan supports knowledge solutions to strengthen and expand social protection programs in DMCs. ADB's corporate results framework has adopted the SPI as one of the measures of inclusive growth. The SPI is also identified as an outcome indicator in the SPOP.

Description

Provision of social protection is recognized as the third pillar of ADB's inclusive growth agenda under Strategy 2020. Approved in December 2013, the SPOP aims to operationalize ADB's Social Protection Strategy and align it with Strategy 2020. The operational plan supports knowledge solutions to strengthen and expand social protection programs in DMCs. ADB's corporate results framework has adopted the SPI as one of the measures of inclusive growth. The SPI is also identified as an outcome indicator in the SPOP.

The proposed R-CDTA supports implementation of the SPOP by building capacity of DMCs to improve delivery of social protection programs through knowledge work (assessment and monitoring through the SPI), and statistical capacity building for better measurement and monitoring of expenditures on social protection. In consultation with operations departments, selected DMCs will be identified for additional technical support to integrate SPI modules into household-level national surveys. This important activity helps build the statistical capacity of governments to monitor social protection programs. Similar component was also piloted under R-CDTA 7601 in Indonesia, Philippines and Sri Lanka.
