In order to inform and raise awareness on the role of Universal and comprehensive Social Protection Floors (as per ILO Recommendation 202) and systems in the fight against poverty and inequalities, the Global Coalition for Social Protection Floors, develops campaign tools such as Videos, Photo exhibitions, Briefing papers and others. Here you will find the last tools developed.
To support Least Developed Countries set up and develop national social protection floors, the UN Special Rapporteurs on the Right to Food, Olivier De Schutter, and on extreme poverty and human rights, Magdalena Sepulveda, have proposed to set up a Global Fund for Social Protection.
This short video, produced by SOLIDAR – together with the Friedrich–Ebert-Stiftung, the Global Network and the Global Coalition for Social Protection Floors – guides you through this new Global Fund, with Olivier de Schutter explaining why we need the Fund and how it would work.
The Round Table “Winning the fight against poverty and inequality: a Social Protection Floor for Everyone” has been organised by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, Brot für die Welt and SOLIDAR in the framework of the Global Coalition for Social Protection Floors. This debate took place on 4th November 2015 in the European Parliament in Brussels.
