Description

This report provides the summary and recommendations resulting from the project - APEC’s Advancing Inclusive Growth through Social Protection (AIGSP). This project is aimed at better understanding how social protection systems could become more efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable. Economies participating in the seminars identified common challenges to implementing effective social protection and corresponding measures to strengthen these systems. These steps include effectively targeting those most in need of assistance, promoting the employment of beneficiaries, ensuring sustainable program financing, and developing accurate evaluations of program performance.
