Namibia: Delivering Pensions to Remote Communities| 3mins
Director: ILO TV | Producer: ILO TV
Focus Years: 2011 | Country: Switzerland
In Namibia, the government has found an innovative way to deliver its universal pension scheme to elderly people living in remote rural areas: a public-private partnership that has seen pension money distributed using vehicles equipped with cash machines and a biometric recognition system. Nearly all elderly people over the age of 60 are now able to access their pension payment; money that is going a long way to alleviate poverty in Namibia.
