Abstract

Although Togo has had limited social protection programs, the economic shock and natural disasters starting in 2008 brought the need for better mechanisms of social protection to the fore. The Government response has focused on measures to address the immediate needs of the affected populations, while building the analytical base for developing a national social protection policy. This report forms part of the overall analytical work prepared to support the formation of a national social protection policy. It finds that the most common safety net programs are in-kind transfers with limited coverage. It proposes basic elements for the Government to take into consideration in developing a national social protection policy and strategy and identifies next steps in finalizing the preparation of such a policy and strategy.
