Development Pathways is pleased to share a new report, “Child Wellbeing and Social Security in Georgia: The Case for Moving to a More Inclusive National Social Security System”, published by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and authored by Stephen Kidd and Bjorn Gelders.
The report presents innovative new analysis on income dynamics and movements into and out of poverty using data from a representative panel survey that tracked the same households over a five-year period. It argues that the majority of children in Georgia live in vulnerable and insecure families and develops policy options for strengthening the social security system. They include: expanding the Child Benefit, introducing maternity and unemployment insurance, and developing childcare services for working families.
