TRANSFORM : A Leadership and Transformation Learning Initiative on building and managing social protection floors (SP) in Africa
TRANSFORM is an innovative learning initiative on the implementation of national social protection floors in Africa. Social protection floors are nationally defined sets of basic social security
guarantees which secure protection aimed at preventing or alleviating poverty, vulnerability and social exclusion. TRANSFORM promotes critical thinking and builds capacity at national and
subnational levels to improve the design, effectiveness and efficiency of social protection systems. It focuses on non-contributory social protection schemes and programmes. Key to TRANSFORM is the creation of a movement of skilled social protection leaders in Africa to support transformational change utilising state-of-the-art knowledge through internationally informed and locally relevant materials. By supporting the creation and management of nationally defined Social Protection floors which provide minimum social protection guarantees against poverty, vulnerability and social exclusion, the
TRANSFORM initiative is aligned to the 2030 Leave No One Behind Agenda and specifically contributes to the achievement of SDG 1 and its target 1.3 in Africa.
