The Well-being Watch's Report on Basic Services and Streamlining Measures in Times of Recession

In connection with the implementation of the Government‘s covenant on stability of 25 June 2009, the Welfare Watch was commissioned to “examine, in collaboration with the Union of Local Authorities and the social partners, ways of protecting the basic services provided by the local authorities.” This decision was taken at a meeting between the parties on 8 July 2009. The steering committee in charge of the Welfare Watch formed a special Task Force on Basic Services to undertake this task, and the Minister of Social Affairs and Social Security supported the committee's view that the task force should also examine basic services provided by the state. The task force includes representatives of the social partners, NGOs, the Union of Local Authorities and the ministries.
