Welcome to the new edition of socialprotection.org’s newsletter!

In this issue, we explore the links between social protection and education: check out a report exploring social protection policies catering to unemployed and uneducated Senegalese youth, and a video on Mongolia’s programme to educate and raise awareness among young people on their social protection rights.
We hope you enjoy reading!

This month we share the following publications:

Published by the French research organisation IRD, this paper assesses the phenomenon of Senegalese young people who are neither in education, nor in employment, nor in training (NEET) and addresses questions such as the type of policy that can be implemented to tackle it, among others.
This video, produced by the International Labour Organization (ILO), presents Mongolia's programme aimed at providing young people with information on the importance of the social and health insurance.

New blog post
This month we present a new Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) blog post series on Health and Social Protection. The authors, Nadin Medellín, Marco Stampini, and Pablo Ibarrarán, from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), explain how Conditional Cash Transfers programmes are being used to improve access to both health services and the overall health condition of families living in poverty in the Latin America and the Caribbean. Available in English and Spanish.
