UN Policy Paper on Social Protection in Ukraine

Social protection is a human right and it contributes to social and economic development. Social protection systems with wide population coverage, adequate and affordable benefit levels are a key instrument for sustainable development. The 2030 Agenda therefore commits governments to implementing social protection systems and floors to achieve substantial coverage for all, including the poor and vulnerable. The policy paper underlines significant avenues for improving Ukraine’s social protection system, especially in times of COVID that did reveal limitations of the existing social security system.
