Protecting lives, promoting livelihoods

13 April 2011

The Centre for Social Protection at the Institute of Development Studies hosts a major conference on social protection between 13-15 April. Mark Davies from the Centre explains what social protection is and how it can make the difference to the lives of poor people.

Sharing the debate

This is a pivotal moment in this history of social protection, and the CSP is keen to share the forthcoming debates beyond the conference walls. Highlights from the three day event will be captured in a number of ways. Visit the CSP conference webpage for news, video, podcasts and more.

The CSP Conference runs from April 13 - 15 at the Institute of Development Studies at Sussex University in the UK.

The Centre for Social Protection would like to acknowledge the generous support of UNICEF, Concern Worldwide and the Institute of Development Studies in funding this conference.
