Abstract

ESCAP goes live with the new Social Protection Toolbox (www.socialprotection-toolbox.org), packed full of content to support member States and other stakeholders in Asia and the Pacific to build inclusive social protection schemes:

  • More than 100 good practices from around the world that show what others are doing to build inclusive legal frameworks, schemes for those in poverty, for persons with disabilities and universal schemes for all.
  • E-learning guides that show how investing in inclusive social protection can accelerate progress towards the SDGs, why universal schemes are better at reaching the poor than targeted schemes, and what policy options to consider when designing inclusive schemes.
  • An interactive assessment tool that will help you identify coverage gaps in your country and find out how to close them based on the steps other countries are taking to fill similar gaps.
  • An animation that illustrates what social protection is and why it is important for Asia and the Pacific in about 2 minutes.
  • A quiz that tests your knowledge and reveals thought-provoking facts about social protection in Asia and the Pacific.
  • Our latest publications, covering a variety of topics related to social protection, poverty and inequality.
