What can we learn from historical data of social protection financing to improve outcomes for communities in the Pacific and Timor-Leste? This paper provides a comprehensive study on social protection financing in Pacific Island Countries and Timor-Leste, covering their expenditure size, composition, and historical evolution. It aims to aid analysis of this financing for decision-making purposes. The report identifies challenges and opportunities in financing social protection programs and emphasises the need for innovative financing mechanisms and an increased government commitment.
This spreadsheet provides a classification of social protection expenditure in a selection of Pacific Island Countries, and Timor-Leste, according to the economic and functional classification of government expenditure described in the IMF Government Finance Statistics Manual (GFSM) of 2014. It is intended to illustrate how expenditure on different social protection schemes has been classified. The expenditure data was collected and classified as part of a Partnership for Social Protection (P4SP) activity focused on financing investments in social protection.
