Rwanda - Social Protection System Operation Project (English)

The objective of the Social Protection (SP) System Operation Project for Rwanda is to support the Government of Rwanda to improve the efficiency, accountability, and coverage of its social protection system. This programmatic work will help the Government of Rwanda stay on course for reaching its ambitious poverty reduction goals, while addressing a set of second-generation reforms critical to strengthening Rwanda's SP system. This operational series will focus on three main areas: improving the efficiency of Rwanda's SP system, strengthening accountability and transparency, and expanding appropriate coverage. The Government of Rwanda has established SP as a priority in its ambitious goal to accelerate poverty reduction to less than 30 percent of the population and to reduce extreme poverty to 9 percent by 2018. Rwanda is among global leaders in building an integrated SP system in a low-income environment that is closely tied to national goals of poverty reduction. This development policy operation (DPO) series is fully supportive of the end-line goals for Rwanda’s national SP strategy (2013-18) and second economic development and poverty reduction strategy (EDPRS-2) (2013-18) as well as with Rwanda's goals of strengthening the prospects of its vulnerable population for graduation from poverty and social assistance.
