The report summarizes the findings of three country case studies � Armenia, Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan � and provides a general overview of social protection and safety nets issues in relation to food security and nutrition outcomes in the sub-region, with a synthesis of the main trends and a set of consolidated findings and policy recommendations.

This report is part of a series of scoping studies on Social Protection and Safety Nets for Enhanced Food Security and Nutrition in the Central Asia Region commissioned by the World Food Programme in partnership with the University of Maastricht in 2017. Specific country focused studies were conducted in Armenia, Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan with a view to contributing fresh evidence and sound policy analysis around social protection issues in relation to food and nutrition security, and resulting in a set of country-specific policy recommendations on nutrition-sensitive social protection and safety nets that consider the perspectives of a wide range of stakeholders.
