520    "The promotion of social protection in sub-Saharan Africa 
       happens in a context where informal labour markets 
       constitute the norm, and where most workers live uncertain
       livelihoods with very limited access to official social 
       protection. The dominant social protection agenda and the 
       associated literature come with an almost exclusive focus 
       on donor and state programmes even if their coverage is 
       limited to small parts of the populations - and in no way 
       stands measure to the needs. In these circumstances, 
       people depend on other means of protection and cushioning 
       against risks and vulnerabilities including different 
       forms of collective self-organizing providing alternative 
       forms of social protection. These informal, bottom-up 
       forms of social protection are at a nascent stage of 
       social protection discussions and little is known about 
       the extent or models of these informal mechanisms. This 
       book seeks to fill this gap by focusing on three important
       sectors of informal work, namely: transport, construction,
       and micro-trade in Kenya and Tanzania. It explores how the
       global social protection agenda interacts with informal 
       contexts and how it fits with the actual realities of the 
       informal workers. Consequently, the authors examine and 
       compare the social protection models conceptualized and 
       implemented 'from above' by the public authorities in 
       Tanzania and Kenya with social protection mechanisms 'from
       below' by the informal workers own collective 
       associations"--|cProvided by publisher.
