Together to achieve Universal Social Protection by 2030


The event was livestreamed through and it is possible to watch the recorded sessions here.


Universal social protection (USP) is essential to the economic and social development of individuals, communities and nations. It is also a human right. We call on all countries to live up to their commitment to develop nationally owned social protection systems for all, including floors, as articulated in the Sustainable Development Goals in 2015.

The conference will be an opportunity to:

  • showcase USP stories from champions and pioneers in developing countries
  • encourage countries in the Global South to adopt the USP Call to Action
  • hear what countries need from development partners to join the Global Partnership for Universal Social Protection to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (USP2030)

Governments, multilateral actors and all relevant national, regional and international organisations are invited to exchange on good practices and lessons learnt in delivering social protection to all, and to identify innovative approaches.
