Summary "The financial, fiscal and economic affordability and sustainability of social protection systems has become, rightly or wrongly, a major concern for countries at all stages of economic development. This Guide provides evidence showing both that some level of social security can be afforded at early stages of national development; and that social security systems remain affordable even when economies mature and populations age, and hence, a country's national investment in social security can be well justified, whether or not an extensive social security system has already been developed."--Introduction
