Panel discussion 6: Successful cases on building national strategies

The establishment of social protection floors has increasingly been recognized by all countries as an efficient approach to reduce vulnerability and strengthen resilience to natural calamities and other shocks, as well as combating poverty, inequality, and exclusion. The level of engagement on social protection has increased dramatically as evidenced by the number of United Nations Development Assistance Frameworks (UNDAFs) that prioritize the development of social protection. Several UN agencies have joined forces to promote social protection floors and support countries in designing and implementing their national social protection strategies.
