Global Alliances for Social Protection II: Dialogue and joint learning to promote universal social protection worldwide

The 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) create a framework for all countries to combating poverty. Within this background, social protection systems have an important role to play, since they aim to protect the population against social, economic and natural risks. In addition, effective social protection systems promote the active participation of all population groups in economic growth processes, contribute to the reduction of inequalities and thus support sustainable and inclusive social development. 

The programme takes up the principles of the 2030 Agenda (universality, indivisibility, leaving no one behind, participation and accountability) and acts in accordance with the Global Partnership for Universal Social Protection 2030 to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (USP2030). On behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), GIZ supports the exchange of experiences, mutual learning and political participation of and between national partners and global actors on social protection topics.
