Light-Touch Mapping of SDC Activities in Social Protection
MetadataShow full item record
Social protection is not explicitly mentioned as part of SDC’s strategic objectives 2017- 2020 or listed as a SDC priority theme (as outlined in ‘Dispatch 2017-2020’). Yet many SDC country offices do engage with social protection – either through their support of wider policy frameworks or by providing input into specific interventions. As social protection is not a separate theme within SDC, there is no direct overview of activities that are undertaken in this area across the organisation. This note presents findings of a light-touch mapping exercise aiming to obtain insight into the ongoing engagements with social protection across SDC. It is based on information obtained from geographical divisions guided by a basic definition of social protection.
