Social Protection and Jobs Global Practice

The Social Protection & Jobs Global Practice (SPJ GP) delivers operational approaches and evidence-based solutions to help individuals and families manage risk, cope with chronic or transitional poverty, and access better livelihoods and jobs. These include:

• Strategy, analysis and financing of programs delivering social safety nets assistance in the form of cash transfers, public works programs, social services, and fee waivers.
• Advisory and analytical services on design and delivery of social insurance programs, contributory transfers, including old-age pensions, unemployment insurance, disability and survivor benefits, and their fiscal sustainability (including budget support for transitions).
• Analysis, design and delivery of Labor market and youth employment programs, with a focus on supply side interventions and intermediation policies, as well as policy advice on labor market regulations and interventions.
• Strategy, analysis, financing and design of integrating social protection delivery systems (e.g., payments, identification, registries, systems assessments) as underpinnings of effective social programs that can help cope with climate shocks or underpin fiscal reforms.

Social Protection in Rwanda and World Bank engagement

Social Protection services in Rwanda are mainly delivered through the flagship social safety net, the Vision 2020 Umurenge Program (VUP) which started in 2008, complemented by other initiatives such as support to Genocide Survivors and demobilization and reintegration of ex-combatants and other accompanying measures. VUP includes a mix of interventions comprising of unconditional cash transfers, nutrition-sensitive co-responsibility cash transfers, classic labor-intensive public works, and gender and child sensitive public works schemes. VUP includes as well economic inclusion / graduation interventions as well as financial services.

The Ministry of Local Government (MINALOC) serves as the institutional home for Social Protection from policy perspective whereas the VUP is delivered through a dedicated Local Administrative Entities Development Agency (LODA) in partnership with other relevant agencies. Social Protection in Rwanda is increasingly gender, child and nutrition sensitive and is expected to significantly contribute supporting human capital development especially for the poor and vulnerable and the coverage of the informal sector is increasingly becoming critical as Covid-19 shock has shown.

These new orientations call for increased coordination with other relevant agencies and Ministries such as MIGEPROF, MINEDUC, Ministry of Health, National Child Development Agency, National Identification Agency, Rwanda Biomedical Center, Rwanda Social Security Board, etc.

World Bank has been a key partner to the Government of Rwanda since the inception of VUP and its engagement has been through Investment Project Financing (IPF), Development Policy Financing (DPF) and through Advisory Services and Analytics (ASA), in coordination with other development partners.
