To achieve Universal Social Protection. The ILO and its partners have developed methodologies and tools and specific approaches to address vulnerabilities. ILO’s Flagship Programme on Building Social Protection for All contributes to Universal Social Protection IN LINE WITH THE 2030 DEVELOPMENT AGENDA


Statement of the ILO Director-General
Guy Ryder

"A consensus has emerged in the early 21st century that universal social protection is a fundamental development priority. Social protection is a key element of national strategies to promote human development, political stability and inclusive growth.

The Social Protection Floors Recommendation, 2012 (No. 202), reflects this consensus... in this spirit the Sustainable Development Goal 1.3, calls for implementing "nationally appropriate social protection systems and measures for all, including floors."
