The persistence of large-scale problems such as poverty, inequality, vulnerability, unemployment and informal work in Latin America is leading Latin American countries to strengthen their social protection systems and incorporate currently excluded populations in them.
Despite the fact that social protection has become one of the pillars of social development strategies, in Latin America no single perspective on this exists, but rather it has been approached from different points of view. EUROsociAL adapts to the needs and priorities of each country, supporting the design of policies and instruments, as well as management, to build comprehensive systems with inclusive social protection.
The fundamental lines of work are:
- Strengthening of social institutional frameworks and of management of social protection policies.
- Social and job market inclusion of recipients of conditional cash transfers.
- Expansion of public care systems.
