Efficient governance supported by sound actuarial studies can make a lasting difference in the long-term success or failure of social protection systems. The adequacy and financial sustainability of long-term benefits provided under national public pension schemes have major policy implications. Actuarial studies are empowering policy-makers to better anticipate future deficits and achieve the policy objectives of social protection systems. Through a combination of lectures and applied modelling exercises, this course aims at reinforcing the technical skills needed for the long-term actuarial planning of national pension schemes and social protection systems.
The course is designed for quantitative specialists, such as economists, actuaries, statisticians, mathematicians, computer programmers, accountants and financial managers, involved in the financial planning of public pension schemes and other social protection programs.
