The aim of this paper is to provide some guidance on how to carry out a social protection (SP) expenditure, performance and finance review - given the absence of social protection in public expenditure review (PER) work to date. Such a review will enable countries (i) to better use their SP budgets as a proactive instrument in addressing vulnerability and welfare concerns, and (ii) to propose solutions that ultimately aim at reducing poverty and maximizing social welfare.
