Seventy-five per cent of people worldwide now lack access to adequate social protection. The Rio+20 outcome document strongly encouraged national and local initiatives aimed at providing social protection floors for all citizens in line with ILO Recommendation 202 concerning National Floors of Social Protection. In shaping future sustainable development goals, the extension of social protection and social security has been identified by the co-chairs of the Open Working Group as a core issue pertinent to the focus areas of Poverty Eradication, Employment and Decent Work for All, and Promoting Equality.
This event will discuss illustrative targets and indicators on extending social protection floors for all to inform the deliberations surrounding the post-2015 development agenda. Concrete examples and successful experiences on means of implementation of social protection floors, including financing issues, will also be addressed.
