Description:

How might safety nets be contributing positively to the lives of people across Africa? It's a key question for policy wonks and others and it is addressed in intense detail in this corner of the World Bank's website. Here, visitors will find a 166-page report released in February 2014 that provides copious details on how "safety nets are critical instruments for reducing extreme poverty and increasing shared prosperity." The report looks at programs in 22 countries and specifically at how donors from middle income countries contribute to these programs in Liberia, Mali, and Sierra Leone. The site also contains an executive summary, along with a slideshow and several illustrative videos.
