Preparing for an Uncertain Future: Expanding Social Protection for Children in Eastern Europe and Central Asia
AbstractPoverty disproportionately affects children in all CEECIS countries for which data is available. Social protection is needed to mitigate the lasting effects of the 2008/09 economic crisis in CEECIS, as well as the additional strains on households due to the Eurozone crisis, high unemployment, and recurring food/fuel price spikes. Existing social protection systems in the region need urgent reform: programmes for children need to reach more vulnerable families, provide higher allocations, and offer additional support services beyond cash.
