dc.description.abstractThe Minimum Living Standard Guarantee Scheme (MLSGS or dibao) is a national social assistance program in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) which provides cash transfers to poor urban and rural residents. In 2008, the MLSGS benefited over 23 million urban and 43 million rural residents. As the dibao program has grown rapidly up to this point, a concern of the government has emerged as to how to structure social welfare benefits so that more comprehensive assistance can be provided, and in addition, how to ensure that beneficiaries who are able to work eventually enter the workforce and no longer require welfare benefits. This social protection brief provides key results and recommendations from the ADB policy and advisory technical assistance which was aimed at contributing toward the achievement of the government’s social assistance goals in line with the Twelfth Five-Year Plan.en_US
