    Description
    The action was instrumental to present to the Ministry of Empowerment, Social Welfare, Youth, Women and Children of Zanzibar a relevant European experience in establishing and managing Universal Social Pensions. Experts from Germany, the Netherlands, South Africa and Spain provided technical advice on what is affordable for Zanzibar in relation to its policy, fiscal, and demographic environment. They particularly focused on the information management system needed to deploy a social pensions scheme. They helped to draft an implementation plan, then supported the development of a project proposal and the technical specifications needed to develop a management information system.
