Social Protection for All

Social Protection

Social protection is a universal right which is affordable (also for poor countries) and which works to accelerate progress towards sustainable and inclusive development.

Social protection consists of a range of different measures: measures of prevention, based on the principles of social insurance and solidarity enabling people to cope with certain risks; measures of protection, based on social assistance and directed at the poorest and most vulnerable members of society; measures of promotion aiming at investing in people’s capacities making it possible for all to develop their full potential; and policies that relate to power imbalances in society that encourage, create and sustain vulnerabilities (transformative element).
