Social Protection and Vulnerability, Risk and Exclusion Across the Life-Cycle

  • Social protection interventions at key stages across the life-cycle contribute towards breaking the intergenerational transmission of poverty.
  • Poverty and vulnerability analysis help identify sources of risk and exclusion that are related to life-cycle changes and intergenerational factors, and help inform appropriate social protection responses.
  • Based on a „life-cycle analysis‟, policymakers can design social protection systems in a holistic way and ensure that individual instruments complement one another to progressively achieve universal coverage and predictable and cumulative benefits to individuals and households to promote pro-poor growth and reduce social exclusion.
