NDWPD Executive Director moderated the session on social justice at the Global People’s Assembly in New York, where we discussed social protection, health, and the peoples vaccine.
The Universal social protection is a right and a policy anchored in global commitments such as article 22 of the universal declaration of human rights, recommendation 202 on the SP Floor, and SDG target 3 of the 1st SDG goal of no poverty. While everyone as a member of society has the right to social security the sad reality is that 40 % of the global population is without it.
Also, Social protection requires multi stakeholder involvement which brings together government private sector civil society and communities. It is centered round the 4 pillars of social services, social assistance, social insurance and social promotion and can be considered a foundational corner stone of SDG achievement..
