A joint statement of social protection actors to the World Humanitarian Summit

As part of strengthening development-humanitarian linkages, members of SPIAC-B support the further expansion and strengthening of social protection systems to continue to address chronic vulnerabilities and to scale up the utilization of social protection as a means of responding to shocks and protracted crises. Members of SPIAC-B are convinced that well-designed and implemented social protection systems, can contribute to reduce needs and respond better in different contexts.
