We are supporting United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) and the Ministry of Social Affairs in Tunisia to develop a Comprehensive National Social Protection Systems and Reforms Country Profile for Tunisia.
The country profile will seek to establish a comprehensive and thorough review and analysis of the national social protection system, a summary of the national context, an overview of the legislative and policy framework, an inventory of social protection programmes and an in-depth examination of two or three main programmes.
It will also provide a baseline from which to monitor developments in the sector as well as an appreciation of the social protection system’s effectiveness and efficiency in terms of both life-cycle risk mitigation and covariate shock responsiveness. Furthermore, it will offer well-informed reform options with estimated costs to inform decision-making. Finally, the country profile will provide a standardised basis for drawing cross-country comparisons in the region.
