The impacts of social protection on economic growth are a deciding factor when governments are allocating resources to social protection programmes.  Our work in this area includes research and policy advice on maximising the synergies between social protection and agricultural policies and programmes, and the development of modelling tools to identify and quantify linkages between growth and social protection.
