Social development and equality

In 2010 and 2011, the Latin American and Caribbean region experienced solid economic growth and job creation which contributed to poverty reduction. However, social vulnerability remains extremely high and socioeconomic gaps large. Consequently, the work of the subprogramme in the biennium focused on strengthening social protection and care provision with a redistributive emphasis, improving social expenditure and child poverty analysis, studying and promoting the positive impact of ICTs on health and education, and disseminating innovative social development projects.
