Leveraging social protection for poverty reduction, food security, nutrition and decent work

Leveraging social protection for poverty reduction, food security, nutrition and decent work


Universal social protection (USP) is an essential pillar for an inclusive and sustainable transformation of food systems and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Yet, 71% of the world’s population are not adequately covered by social protection, with 55% not having any coverage and an additional 16% having only insufficient coverage.

In recent years, including in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the scale of social protection has significantly expanded, contributing to reduced poverty, risk, and vulnerability.

Based on innovative and well-known practices around the world, we are developing a coalition that promotes several ways for strengthening national social protection systems, including their design and implementation, and their coherence with agri-food systems, for unleashing their potential for poverty reduction, food security and better nutrition, decent work, and equitable and sustainable livelihoods.

Join the creation of a Coalition on Social Protection and Food Systems towards the UN Food Systems Summit in September and beyond!

On July 26 at the Pre-Summit, we will jointly discuss solutions and opportunities to promote better food security, nutrition, decent work and inclusive and sustainable livelihoods with a group of governments, civil society, academic, and international organizations.
