The UNCDF have commissioned Martin to provide consultancy and research advice to countries in the Asia and Pacific Region on social protection systems. The work begins in the summer of 2011 and is expected to take Martin to Nepal to assist in the design and implementation of their social pension system.


“Martin is an outstanding scholar and researcher in the field of social security and broader social policy. He is concerned with both the theory and practice of policy and its potential contribution to social development. He has worked around the world and brings a rare breadth of understanding and wisdom.”
