When Civil Society, ILO, UNICEF and the European Union work together to promote social protection.
The brochure presented describes the project “Social Protection & Public Finance Management” that aims to strengthen national public financial management, budgeting and financing of social protection in 18 countries. Funded by the European Commission, over the period 2020-2023, this project is innovative; it combines joint action by the European Commission, ILO, UNICEF and civil society organised in the Global Coalition for Social Protection Floors (GCSPF) represented by WSM, HelpAge and Oxfam.
In this project, WSM is the GCSPF lead in Nepal and Senegal, while HelpAge and Oxfam are the leads in Uganda and Cambodia respectively. In Nepal, the Social Protection Civil Society Network (SPCSN) and ITUC-NAC are the key actors, and in Senegal, INSP!R - Senegal and other civil society organisations are the leads. In each country, the strengthening of civil society coordination, thematic training and exchange of experiences, and studies feed into advocacy for sustainable social protection financing mechanisms for all.
