Social protection for sustainable development: A human rights-based approach
The United Nations 2030 Agenda recognises social protection systems as a key enabler of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (United Nations, 2015). Several SDGs and targets refer to social protection as a vital condition for their successful implementation. Each SDG and target corresponds with either one or more provisions of international human rights treaties.
In this context, this blog highlights the importance of harnessing the SDGs-human rights anchorage as a roadmap to implement social protection policies and practices towards realising the 2030 Agenda.
