Extending social protection for informal workers in Togo



In Togo, according to the ILO (International Labour Organization), 92.8% of the workforce is informal. This means that a large share of the Togolese population is vulnerable to shocks and risks that might impact their livelihoods. Over the past decade, however, the country has witnessed many positive developments in extending social protection to workers in informal employment. In this briefing note, we follow this struggle, looking at how worker organizations, international organizations and civil society have contributed to the recent advances in social protection for workers in Togo.
