Evaluation of UNDP Support to Social Protection


UNDP support to tackle the gaps in coverage by strengthening the governance of social protection systems, enabling programmes to reach those without access, and promoting instruments that can better respond during shocks is based on the organization’s long-standing focus on poverty reduction and its multi-dimensional approach to development. This independent global thematic evaluation assessed UNDP’s contribution to social protection policies and institutional processes and mechanisms for enabling inclusive social protection.

Drawing on evidence of UNDP’s support globally, the evaluation confirms that the UNDP’s broader development mandate brings great potential to enable governments to link social protection to a wider development focus and complement the sectoral approach of specialized agencies.
