Social Protection: Mapping Social Protection: Knowing the Informal National Force PASGR Policy Brief 8

This briefing suggests ways in which community based organisations can be mapped and harnessed in national systems for social protection

Abstract

A major research project in 6 African countries confirms that many people are not reached and many needs are not met by State social protection services. The shortfalls are often met by self-help initiatives, but governments do not have adequate information on where these services (community based organisations – CBOs) are, who operates them, or exactly what they do. This briefing suggests ways in which CBOs can be mapped and harnessed in national systems for social protection.
