Centre for Social Protection

start date
4 Sep 2006

Social protection is a set of policies and programmes that reduce poverty and provide a safety net for the poorest and most marginalised people and communities.

The Centre for Social Protection (CSP) supports a global network of partners working to mainstream social protection in development policy and encourage social protection systems and instruments that are comprehensive, long-term, sustainable and pro-poor.
