What is Social Protection?

Social Protection Systems

“Social protection systems are defined differently by different agencies. The World Bank strategy refers to them as “portfolios of coherent programmes that can talk to each other, often share common administrative sub-systems, and work together to deliver resilience, equity and opportunity.” UNICEF defines integration as “a network of responses, that take a multi-pronged and coordinated approach to the multiple and compounding vulnerabilities faced by children and their families.” ”
