Impact of fiscal and social protection policies in Togo
Fiscal policies may reduce inequalities in Togo, but they impoverish the poorest households. These key findings come from a new OECD study on the impact of fiscal and social protection policies on inequalities and poverty in that country. The study estimates the redistributive impact of tax revenues and tax expenditures through monetary, non-monetary transfers and subsidies, on household incomes and inequalities. Despite improvements in the level of education and an increase in life expectancy, the challenges in terms of poverty and inequality remain very important.
