Child wellbeing and social security in Georgia

This UNICEF paper examines a range of options for increasing the impacts of the national social security system on children. It suggests that if Georgia is considering extending the Child Benefit, it could take lessons from its old age pension, which is one of the most successful schemes across developing countries. These key lessons include the effectiveness of universal provision, and the scheme’s relatively generous benefit value.
