Webinar Presentation - Agenda 2030: Leave no one behind - Online dialogue on inclusive social protection for displaced children and their families

Slide presentation of the webinar held on 21 September 2023.

This year marks the midpoint to 2030. The recently released report of the Secretary General on Progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals found, however, that only about 12 per cent of the SDG targets are on track, while 30 per cent have either seen no movement or even regressed below the 2015 baseline. Forcibly displaced children are among those left furthest behind. While children account for 30 per cent of the world’s population, at 40 per cent, they are overrepresented among all forcibly displaced.

At the same time, many countries have made important progress towards realising social protection benefits, by investing in the development of systems to support displaced and host communities, often in collaboration with international partners. The purpose of this dialogue was to discuss how these initiatives can strengthen inclusive social protection systems for forcibly displaced and host communities, including how they can be leveraged alongside the Global Accelerator on Jobs and Social Protection for Just Transitions to benefit displaced populations.
