Abstract

Social Safety Nets (SSNs) are the institutions and regularized practices which serve to protect individuals from remaining or falling below a defined standard of living. A variety of SSNs have existed in developing countries for decades -- employment generation schemes, food subsidies, targeted health and nutritional support programmes, etc. In recent years, these have been complemented by new social safety net models --known as emergency social funds, social investment funds, and social action programmes, which are the central subjects of study of this paper. The new forms of SSNs have been typically multi-sectoral, demand-driven, and often administered by independent and specially created institutions. Projects sponsored by these SSNs can be designed and implemented by NGOs, municipalities, private contractors, or existing ministries.
