September, 2015

The launch of UNESCAP's Social protection Toolbox was done at Hotel Taj Vivanta on the 3rd of december, 2013. The Social Protection Toolbox is the main output of an inter-regional UN project on "Strengthening Social Protection." The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) is leading the project in cooperation  with three other Regional Commissions of the United Nations.

The Toolbox is an on-line platform that aims to support policy makers and stakeholders in their endeavors to build broader and more robust social protection systems. By providing access to good practices that can be used as a basis for improving upon existing schemes as well as a network of experts to promote dialogue, the Toolbox seeks to facilitate the building of consensus in "moving forward" toward a broader coverage.

The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) and the Institute of Social Studies Trust (ISST) launched UNESCAP's online Social Protection Toolbox in Delhi on December 3, 2013. The programme was attended by representatives from the goverment, civil society, academia, media, and other stakeholders.
