Analyzing Social Protection Policies: a focus on income support schemes

Income support schemes have emerged as a widespread response to protect vulnerable populations in the aftermath of the recent global economic crisis. While being commonly applied, a compilation and analysis of the various possible income support arrangements has not been undertaken to date. This project aims to enhance social protection by compiling and analyzing current practices and experiences of selected countries in the Asia-Pacific region in developing and implementing income support programmes.
