Establishing an Adaptive Social Protection System in Angola

Submitted by pmassetti on Mon, 04/15/2024 - 15:58 (31.01.2024) Angola is a middle-income country, but it has high poverty and vulnerability levels. In urban areas, households living in poverty or vulnerable to poverty are significantly more likely to be women-headed households, less likely to have access to adequate housing, and rely on self-employment. The country is affected by significant climate-related and price shocks. An analysis of drought hotspots indicates that the south and southwest regions of Angola are highly vulnerable to droughts, which have recently become more prolonged and persistent.

But these benefits go hand-in-hand with disruptions. Our interactions with one another and with society more broadly are being transformed, as are the nature and structure of organisations and markets, raising important issues around jobs and skills, privacy, security, and how to ensure that technological changes benefit society as a whole, among others.
