This Developments and Trends report – Dynamic Social Security for Africa: An Agenda for Development – has been prepared to mark the occasion of the first Regional Social Security Forum for Africa, organized by the International Social Security Association (ISSA), in partnership with the Social Security Fund of Rwanda, 18–20 November 2008, in Kigali, Rwanda.
In recent years, African governments and international development partners have become increasingly focused on social security’s role in national poverty reduction efforts. The ISSA welcomes this development. Social security must be a permanent ingredient in strategies aimed at realizing poverty reduction, pro-poor economic growth and sustainable livelihoods. Broadly put, social security is an essential building block of a “good society”, something that supports the lives and aspirations of not only the poor but also the middle classes and the more prosperous. To be clear, social security is not only about poverty reduction; it is much more.
