The study provides an overview of the social protection situation in each of the ten ASEAN Member States, using the framework of the four Guarantees adopted in 2012 under the ILO’s Social Protection Floors Recommendation (No. 202). The report documents country experiences that can inspire ASEAN Member States in their work to develop effective social protection systems. The study also offers recommendations for practical strategies and policy options for extending social protection coverage in the region and provides baseline information against which to measure progress.
