Activation for poverty reduction : realizing the potential of Armenia’s social safety nets (الأرمينية)

Since the peak of the economic crisis, poverty reduction in Armenia has made limited progress, with poverty rates moving from 34.1 percent in 2009 to 32 percent in 2013. These conditions highlight the need to have a robust social protection (SP) system that not only offers adequate protection to people living in poverty but can also serve as a tool to increase the quality of human capital, which in turn can help improve their economic opportunities. The objective of this policy note is twofold. First, it provides a diagnostic of the SP system in order to identify the key issues that can be addressed to enhance its effectiveness and efficiency to achieve greater poverty reduction. Second, the note outlines a set of options - policies and reforms for the Government of Armenia (GoA) to consider as it continues to strengthen its poverty-reduction strategy. It is important to note that the focus of the report is on social assistance (SA) and labor market (LM) policies for vulnerable groups. Armenia will need to strengthen coordination across functions, in the context of social service integration. Armenia has already made significant strides in the integration of its services into one-stop shops as a basis for building more synergies across SP functions.
