Summary (English)

The brief presents the Mozambican practice of preparing and publishing an annual National Statistical Bulletin on Social Protection. This practice demonstrates how this country has successfully developed a tool that harmonizes national data and underpins informed social protection decision-making, based on concrete and comprehensive data. In addition to contributing to defining more efficient policies for extending social protection coverage, the tool also allows the measurement of the progress made towards the SDG target 1.3, which concerns social protection floors.
