Women and Social Protection in Georgia

Women and Social Protection in Georgia cover

Social protection schemes and programmes are the primary tool for channeling resources to the poor in Georgia. However, they mainly aim at minimizing the effects of poverty by contributing to poverty alleviation and preventing beneficiaries from falling into extreme poverty. A gender equality approach to social protection programmes is key to enabling men and women’s equal access to protection from poverty. This brief highlights some aspects of the social protection system and the ways it responds to women’s needs in Georgia.

This brief was developed by UN Women Georgia Country Office in the framework of the UN Women projects “Women’s Economic Empowerment in the South Caucasus” funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC) and “Good Governance for Gender Equality in Georgia” supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
