Rwanda Social protection and VUP report - Results of EICV 4

In this report, we explore the characteristics of poor and potentially vulnerable households in Rwanda, and we analyse what types of household use the social protection programmes, especially the VUP and their experiences of doing so. Section 2 discusses the nature of vulnerability in the country. Section 3 presents the findings from the VUP.

A National Social Protection Strategy was approved by Cabinet in 2011 and an updated version was released in July 2013 to align its timeframe with that of the EDPRS2 and to take into account the findings on poverty and on social protection coverage from the results of the EICV3 survey.
