RNSF book "Extending coverage: Social protection and the informal economy" is available here!
You will find in the link below the RNSF book "Extending coverage: Social protection and the informal economy" drafted during the RNSF Regional Workshop held in Kenya last February.
The RNSF project organised a regional workshop in Kenya in an effort to answer the question: “How can we use social protection mechanisms as a tool for promoting social inclusion of people dependent on the informal economy?”
This workshop was a collective effort to share experience and perspectives on how to enhance economic opportunities for socially excluded groups, while improving their access to essential social services. The rationale was to engage a variety
of stakeholders coming from different backgrounds to get their perspectives on how to improve social protection for vulnerable groups dependent on the informal economy.
The workshop was held at Lake Naivasha from 6 to 10 February 2017. Participants included academics, public officers, regional experts, and civil society organisations implementing projects funded by the EU Thematic Programme “Investing in People” in Egypt, Kenya, India, Rwanda, Somalia, and Tanzania.
We thank all the participants of the workshop for their commitment and their enthusiasm and the European Commission for making this book possible.
