Third,risk coping strategies that seek to mitigate the impacts of shocks after they have occurredwhich would classically be social assistance programmeswhether in kind or cash Currentlythe public sector plays a small role in how households in India cope with risks Most people have to rely on themselves and family and social networks But traditional support networks are under strain Declining intergenerational co-residencerising migration and urbanisation strain familial and caste networks Economic transformations weaken traditional patron-client relations Migrants often lack social networks and even face hostility as outsiders in various statesmaking it tough to even find shelter Weaker social networks may make it harder for urban households to cope with insecurity and the threat of crime In a society where menmarriagefamily and caste continue to be the source of provision and protection for vulnerable individualsbeing a non-conformist and deviating from discriminatory relationships is a serious risk Moving to an alien cityor women deciding to work outside the homechallenge traditional norms of who does whatwherefor whom and when Oftenmoving to cities asserts greater personal independencebut the repercussions and social isolation can be a major shock Howeversuch risk-taking behaviour ultimately enhances not just growth but also wellbeingas it bolsters the socio-economic status or bargaining positionas economists would sayof women or lower caste individuals and allows people to feel more empowered and productive Positive social changes in Indian labour markets are a source of shocks and social risk management canif not rewardat least facilitate people in seizing these growth-enhancing opportunities If individuals are to be encouraged to take up work and move away from traditional occupationspublic commitment to insurance mechanisms is a must International evidence suggests that effective social protection systems contribute to growth by enabling higher risk/higher return productive activities and by cushioning the impacts of growth-enhancing reforms for those who lose out from them in the short run If welfare programmes and entitlements are meant to be strategic investments in growthrather than mere grants to avoid destitutionthen social protection strategy must improve our ability to manage risks This leads to a different set of design principles Firstincreasing preventive programmes that help those vulnerable to poverty to anticipate and manage risks and shocks betternot simply attempt to provide chronic transfers While Indias range of programmes is impressive for a developing countrythe current social policy architecture in spending and priorities remains strongly focused on chronic poverty and rural areas Historically this made good sense In a nation where most households are too poor to insure against risks and where a majority have already experienced the shocks before contributory schemes existedsocial assistance is the appropriate intervention But social protection policy has not yet responded to the evolution of risk-profilesliving standardschanging demographic realities and an emergent mobile and vulnerable middle class The future will bring increasing demands for expanded coverage of social insurance This social protection architecture need not be a massive fiscal burdenif the design is self-financing by helping to control additional demands on safety nets that might otherwise arise due to factors such as preventive riskswhich can push households into capability and debt traps Thusan increased emphasis on interventions that promote ex ante management of household risk should be expectedparticularly in medium- and high-growth states This implies an increased emphasis on insurance-based interventions Aam Aadmi Bima Yojana (AABY) and Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana (RSBY) are exciting and rapidly expanding initiatives that can provide a way forward Health shocks are a major source of riskand increased efforts to assist the poor and vulnerable in managing them will be a major challenge Secondsocial policies need to focus not just on the poorbut also on vulnerability to poverty Poverty is increasingly not an unchanging characteristic of a fixed group Those at risk of falling into poverty can be a greater share of the population than those currently poor The literature on poverty dynamics and vulnerability in India suggests there is considerable movement in and out of poverty In other wordsregardless of the current poverty statushouseholds may fall into poverty after exposure to largesevere and/or frequent shocksespecially when clustered close to the poverty line For instancebetween 1975 and 198588 per cent of households in ICRISAT villages experienced poverty in at least one yeareven though only 22 per cent constituted the chronic poor Since thenliving standards in these villages have improved substantiallyso that 57 per cent of households moved out of poverty between 1984 and 2001while only 3 per cent fell into poverty Similarlythe larger NCAER ARIS/ REDS panel of 250 villages indicates that 47 per cent of households moved out of poverty between 1970-71 and 1981-82while another 26 per cent fell into poverty Half the households in the sample remained chronically poor during this decade Finallyeconomic growth relies on changeand change in place is a big structural economic change The increase in long-duration migration rates since the 1980scombined with a continued reliance on seasonal migration as a coping or livelihood strategysuggests the need for a significant departure from current social policies Essentiallyeven though people are becoming increasingly mobilethe social protection systemas it currently standsis designed for a static population RSBY is one of the few portable schemes designed by the government The direct benefit transfer experiment can help construct financial architecture to enable migrants to access services in different places But who pays for them is yet to be discussed In the destination villages or citiesmigrants typically remain without an identity and hence are unable to draw on their entitlements or claim state resources for educationhealthcarewater and sanitation and other basic services A critical challenge is to design programmes that offer portable benefitswhich can cater effectively to a population not defined by place Bhattacharya is an economist in the World Banks Social Protection Unit in Delhi Pritchett is professor of the practice of international
