The State of Social Assistance in Africa

With this webinar series, the UNDP invites participants to learn more about the situation of social assistance in African countries, looking in particular at legal frameworks, and the institutionalisation and financing of social assistance. The series presents findings on these three foundational aspects of social assistance, drawing on the publication “The State of Social Assistance in Africa” and its accompanying data platform. The publication was developed by the UNDP in partnership with the African Union and in collaboration with ILO, UNECA and UNICEF.
