Cote d’Ivoire

The project “Supporting the response to the COVID-19 crisis in Côte d’Ivoire: an opportunity to extend social protection to workers in the informal economy” started in February 2021, to support government’s actions to face the pandemic crisis.  

The initiative aims to support partners and stakeholders to set the foundations for an effective and sustainable social protection system extended to the informal sector, by strengthening knowledge, existing social protection mechanisms and social dialogue. 

Project partners

The project’s implementation will be done in partnership with the Ministry of Employment and Social Protection (MESP) through the General Directorate of Social Protection (GDSP) and the General Directorate of Employment (GDE), the National Social Security Fund (NSSF), the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF), professional organizations and employers’ and workers’ organizations as well as the European Union Delegation (EUD) in Côte d’Ivoire.
