Whether in a state welfare system or donor-funded programme, the fundamental questions around social protection can be summarised as ‘who’ and ‘how’: who should receive the support, and how should that support be provided? These are highly complex decisions - particularly in the poorest societies, where any form of social protection is a political issue, and where networks to distribute social payments are less established.
