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.
Over 200 civil society organizations and trade unions unite to call for a Global Fund for Social Protection to protect the most vulnerable during COVID-19 and beyond.
The programme Improving Synergies Between Social Protection and Public Finance Management provides medium-term support to multiple countries aiming to strengthen their social protection systems at a national level and ensure sustainable financing. The programme aims to support countries in their efforts towards achieving universal social protection coverage.
This initiative is implemented jointly by the ILO, Unicef, and the GCSPF.
