The two-week core course builds on the latest developments in safety nets as integral part of social protection systems, to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the conceptual and practical issues involved in the development of social assistance or social safety net programs. A variety of learning methods are used, including presentations, round table discussions, simulation games, hands-on computer assisted exercises and group work.
The Safety Nets Core Course was held concurrently with a similar Core Course on Pensions.
Policymakers and policy analysts from Government agencies, NGOs involved in the implementation of social safety nets, and operational staff from the World Bank and from bilateral and multilateral donor agencies. Interested TTLs and countries are encouraged to nominate teams engaged in the design, implementation or evaluation of social safety nets programs.
