Social Protection 2020

Comprehensive systems for multidimensional poverty reduction


Social protection is a human right as well as an effective tool for poverty reduction. It is essential for reaching people living in extreme poverty and vulnerability, for increasing resilience to shocks and breaking the cycle of poverty from continuing across generations.1 It is also an enabler that facilitates achieving other human rights.2 Sida’s support to social protection amounted to approximately SEK 700 million during 2020, approximately 3 percent of Sida’s development cooperation. This corresponds to an increase of almost 100 percent since 2016, which emphasizes the increasing recognition of social protection in international development cooperation.
