Policy highlights:

  • Social safety nets play an important role in reducing poverty and inequality worldwide. However, in low-income countries, only 1 in 5 of the poorest are covered by safety net programmes, while different types of safety nets provide different levels of coverage, e.g. (un)conditional cash transfers, school feeding programmes and social pensions.
