Pathways to Institutionalizing and Extending Social Protection in Asia

In the aftermath of the Asian financial crisis (1999), the Ford Foundation initiated a research program on Social Protection in Asia. This program contributed to a growing body of research on the many dimensions of poverty and vulnerability by identifying categories of vulnerable groups, the nature and sources of vulnerability, and the effectiveness of existing responses to poverty. This grant will allow IDRC to embark with the Ford Foundation on a second phase of research and policy analysis on social protection in Asia. IDRC's contribution will focus on networking and capacity building of Asian institutions working in the area of social protection. The idea is to build a strong empirical base and regional voice to advocate for appropriate social protection strategies.
