Social security coverage for the transport sector

Implementation year
2000

In Sub-Saharan Africa, the transport sector is considered an informal sector. As such, the workers in this sector do not generally benefit from social security coverage. This notwithstanding, Niger’s National Social Security Fund (Caisse nationale de sécurité sociale – CNSS) came up with a strategy to provide social security coverage to this sector.
