Webinar: A Global Fund for Social Protection

Lessons from the diverse experiences of global health, agriculture and climate funds
Based on the study “A global fund for social protection. Lessons from the diverse experiences of global health, agriculture and climate funds” produced by a team of researchers and published by the ILO, this webinar presented experiences of setting up global funds across the health, climate and agriculture sectors and the lessons to be learnt from them that can guide further thinking about the implementation of a prospective global fund for social protection.
Discussion focused on institutional governance arrangements of existing global funds carefully selected for their diversity in terms of origins, longevity, aims and institutional structures, and what they tell us about critical governance issues that need to be carefully navigated in the design and institutionalization of a global fund for social protection.

UN General Assembly: PR and Platitudes

The annual high-level opening week of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly saw discussion on progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), making clear that the 17 goals are badly off track. Much of the discussion focused on financing for the goals but didn’t produce a breakthrough. Little attention was paid to the growing repression of civic space that is stopping effective civil society action on the SDGs. National-level exclusion of civil society is reproduced at the UN level, with civil society denied access to the week’s official events and left unable to engage with decision-makers. Read more

RAISE - Research & Action for Income Security

'RAISE - Research & Action for Income Security' has as its mission to ensure that everybody has income security. We work towards this through two objectives: job creation and social protection.
RAISE has worked on livelihoods for refugees in Uganda since 2018, but are now in the proces of widening its scope both geographically and thematically.
Part of this is the development of their work on social protection. We recently had our first project in this area approved, which is a collaboration with ISER in Uganda with the title: Popularising the African Charter Protocol on the Rights of Citizens to Social Protection and Social Security as a new advocacy tool in Uganda.
