UNICEF, Uganda’s Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development, and the Economic Policy Research Institute (EPRI)
The webinar focused on the case of Uganda to demonstrate that investment in social protection not only ensures human rights, but also contributes to inclusive social development and equitable economic growth, thereby addressing persistent poverty, vulnerability and inequality. The Uganda Investment Case has shown the positive impacts that social protection interventions have had on vulnerable populations, as well as the great potential it offers to the poorest and most vulnerable people if further investments are made in social protection programmes.
