Save the Children: How can social protection better respond to child poverty in Nepal?

Nepal has expanded its investment in social protection over the last few years, with a National Framework for Social Protection drafted in 2011. However, the impact of social protection generally and on children is compromised by challenges in coverage, implementation and delivery. Save the Children commissioned IDS to assess how social protection addresses child poverty in Nepal in order to inform their advocacy at the national level.

The CSP team analysed the extent to which current social protection programmes in Nepal are child sensitive, also taking into account lessons learned from the 2015 earthquakes. This information was used to form programme recommendations on alleviating child poverty and vulnerability through social protection.
