Social Protection Simulation Tool

ESCAP’s social protection simulation tool is an interactive platform for users who want to explore the impacts and benefits of providing comprehensive and inclusive social protection systems. It estimates the impact of introducing social protection programmes on poverty and inequality and computes the relative cost of simulated programme(s), providing different illustrative options to expand fiscal space for social protection. Users are able to delve into different policy options where various social protection programmes are introduced in a country, by setting parameters related to eligibility criteria, coverage levels, and transfer values.
