Global Coalition for Social Protection Floors meets in New Delhi (27-29 January)

How to link SPF with SDGs and bring an effective human rights monitoring mechanisms to the process ensuring no one is left behind?

How do we develop international enabling actions for implementation of SDGs at national levels?

What role can the Global Coalition play at regional and national levels?

To find answers to these questions, a three -day focused global South meeting is being organised between 27 and 29 January and hosted by the PWESCR (Programme on Women’s Economic, Social and Cultural Rights) in New Delhi (India) to

  1. achieve an enhanced understanding of national experience, good practices and challenges with regard to promotion, implementation and monitoring of national SPF and comprehensive social security systems for all.
  2. develop a Global Coalition road map from a South perspective to achieve universal SPF targets at country level, which will be shared in the Coalition Core Group meeting in March, 2016 in Geneva.


Social protection is one of the foundations for inclusive, equitable and sustainable development. With focused advocacy efforts in collaboration with several stakeholders and partners, the Coalition did succeed in getting social protection included as a key component of Sustainable Development Goals. The Coalition has been effective in its collective international advocacy efforts to demand social security. In the last three years, it has worked around SDGs, Human Rights Council, the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and with the EU and has resulted in some promising outcomes.
