Social outlook for Asia and the Pacific: the protection we want.
- Corporate Author:
- United Nations. Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific
Social protection is a fundamental right and serves as an enabler for achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Social protection has been identified as one of the key enablers for implementing the 2030 Agenda and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In most countries, however, large population groups remain unprotected from normal life contingencies. Meanwhile, unprecedented demographic transformations are underway, and the changing world of work introduces new risks for the majority of workers currently occupying jobs in the informal sector. This publication will provide the evidence and impetus to progressively realize social protection for all over the next decade (Decade for Action), based on country-specific contexts, opportunities and challenges.
