advancingAbout the joint statement

The joint statement aims to build greater consensus on the importance of child-sensitive social protec- tion. It lays out the particular vulnerabilities that children and families face, the ways that social protec- tion can impact children even when not focused on them, and outlines principles and approaches for undertaking child-sensitive social protection. The statement emerged from meetings and discussions between partners to consider and outline the importance of furthering social protection and ensuring it is child-sensitive. Moving forward, we hope the statement will support further dialogue among stake- holders on the evolving policy and programming aspects of child-sensitive social protection. The state- ment is an open one;; for information on joining the signatories and supporting the statement, please visit the website:
