The Social Protection Implementation Plan 2015-2020 accompanies the National Social Protection Policy (NSPP) 2015-2025 in The Gambia. It is built on the strategic objectives of the NSPP and defines a set of activities to guide the implementation of the policy. Possible areas for immediate action covered by the Implementation Plan include progressive expansion of coverage through new and existing schemes, strengthening leadership and coordination, monitoring and evaluation and financial arrangements.

The plan is intended to facilitate discussions between key social protection stakeholders on how to prioritise, design, and fund next steps for effective implementation of the NSPP. It also ensures that support from development partners and civil society organizations is aligned and harmonised with the government’s policy.
