Towards a virtuous circle of social protection and inclusion

Non-contributory social protection programmes —primarily intended for persons living in poverty or extreme poverty and/or vulnerable situations— are a core component of poverty eradication policies and strategies in the countries of the region. Their aim is not only to help boost the incomes of the participating households but also to provide greater access —either directly or indirectly, depending on the type of programme— to social services and decent work. These three elements are of key importance if progress is to be made towards an increasing degree of inclusion, a greater share in the benefits of development and an enhanced capacity for the exercise of human rights.
