African countries are increasingly recognising the value of social protection programmes in reducing extreme poverty with success stories in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The Economic Policy Research Institute (EPRI), together with the African Institute for Health and Development (AIHD) and UNU-MERIT/MGSoG, is offering a two-week course aimed at providing participants with an in-depth understanding of the conceptual and practical issues involved in the development of social protection programmes in Africa. Participants will acquire tools required for the appropriate identification and successful design and implementation of these programmes.
