The objective of this concept note is to clarify a set of outstanding issues related to the overarching research question of the NWO/WOTRO call for proposals on social protection:
How do formal and informal social protection programs and initiatives in Sub-Saharan Africa affect strategic dimensions of Inclusive Growth and how (cost-) effective are they in comparison to other interventions that aim to achieve the same objective? How does the design of formal programs interact and enhance effective complementarity with existing informal systems? In which cases do social protection programs have added value over or complement alternative policies in contributing so specific Inclusive Growth objectives?
