Welcome to the April edition of our monthly newsletter!
This month we commence our regionally themed newsletters! Each month will be dedicated to a different region of the world and their social protection efforts. We’re kicking off with a compilation of content from South Asia: The region has pioneered innovative approaches to social protection and established national social protection programmes. These efforts aim to address the high prevalence of poverty and inequality, gender discrimination, rapidly growing populations, and improving education and nutrition for children. We hope you enjoy learning more!
