An Analysis of Fiscal Space for Social Protection in Nigeria
This report identifies the potential fiscal space for social protection in Nigeria. It differentiates between social insurance (contributory social protection such as civil servant pensions) and social assistance (social protection targeted at poor and vulnerable households) - both of which constitute social protection. The report attempts to measure past financial support for social protection and, through this, to assess the potential fiscal space for social protection activities going forward.
