Affordable and not an Illusion - Costing of Basic Social Protection Benefits for Nepal - 2007-2034
Abstract:
Nepal has undergone a decade of political instability which has taken its toll on the economic and social development of the country. The present study provides an estimate on the feasibility of providing a set of basic social protection interventions in Nepal with an emphasis on child related benefits. The basic social protection measures which are proposed here are non-contributory in nature. The study does not aim to look into existing formal sector social protection schemes. A more detailed description of the existing social protection mechanisms has been provided in Khatiwada (2003 mimeo) which notes that while formal sector schemes covering civil servants and private sector employees exist they cover less than 10 per cent of the work force. We see the non-contributory benefits as an additional basic tier in the overall national social security system. #ILO #BasicSocialProtectionForNepal #CashTransfer #ChildBenefits
