In developing countries and in particular in sub-Saharan African countries, neither States nor international development actors have sufficient resources to set up a system of generalized social protection. Given this shortage of resources, various social safety net programs are being tested on part of the population and rarely on the entire target. These programs have been subject of numerous studies over the last 20 years. However, their long-term effects remain largely unrecognized or limited to some countries. Furthermore, a crucial problem that is not sufficiently addressed is that of the links between social protection and social cohesion.
