Phase 2: Implementation of the National Floors of Social Protection!
Petition Background (Preamble):
In June 2012, the International Labour Organization (ILO), the only tripartite U.N. agency with 185 governments, employers, and worker representatives unanimously agreed to implement the Recommendation no.202 on National Floors of Social Protection. Link to the Recommendation https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B12MY21rUARQWkdwRWw0QjdQd00/edit?usp=sharing
The implementation of the National Floors of Social Protection helps to realize human rights for all through guaranteeing:
Universal access to essential services (such as health, education, housing, water and sanitation and other services as nationally defined);
Social Transfers in cash or kind to guarantee income security, food security, adequate nutrition and access to essential services.
In summary, the Social Protection Floors (SPF) is:
Universal- It includes everyone;
Rights- based – (enshrined in the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights);
Nationally owned and designed;
The first step in an ongoing process – not a ceiling
Affordable by all countries.
If National Floors of Social Protection is implemented, the most vulnerable ( Children, Aged, Disabled, Sick, Unemployed…) could have a life of dignity and help to achieve the MDGs
