AFD organizes this event with experts and researchers in order to take stock of these experiences and then explore new dimensions from an economic point of view.

In developing countries and in particular in sub-Saharan African countries, neither States nor international development actors have sufficient resources to set up a system of generalized social protection. Given this shortage of resources, various social safety net programs are being tested on part of the population and rarely on the entire target. These programs have been subject of numerous studies over the last 20 years. However, their long-term effects remain largely unrecognized or limited to some countries. Furthermore, a crucial problem that is not sufficiently addressed is that of the links between social protection and social cohesion. In partnership with Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University, AFD organizes this event with experts and researchers in order to take stock of these experiences and then explore new dimensions from an economic point of view. The following questions, among others will be addressed:

  • What are the links between social protection and social cohesion?
  • Do the socio-economic benefits of cash transfers persist in the long run?
  • Do cash transfers improve access to basic social services?

At the end of the day, a conclusion will focus on the role that social protection can play in the Sahel.

The conference will be in English and animated by  :

  • Jean-Claude Berthelemy (Paris Sorbonne),
  • Hélène Djoufelkit (AFD)
  • Josselin Thuilliez (Paris Sorbonne)
  • Anda David (AFD)
