Zambia - Workshop on Social Security for informal workers





ZAMBIA, JULY 2018.  A policy dialogue on the extension of social security coverage to workers in the informal economy was held in Lusaka on 17 July 2018. The workshop was organised by the EU-Social Protection Systems Programme, with the collaboration of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Zambian Ministry of Labour and Social Security. The event was attended by approximately 30 people; representing the National Pension Scheme Authority (NAPSA), the Ministry of Labour and the Ministry of Finance, unions for informal workers and the Central Statistical Office. During the workshop Caroline Tassot, economist at the OECD, presented updated findings from the 2015 Living Conditional and Monitoring Survey. The discussion and suggestions resulting from the presentation focused on the contributory capacity of informal workers and the need to further detail the profile of the highest earning workers. These comments and feedback will be incorporated in the forthcoming EU-SPS report.
