Presentation - Social protection in development

Improving the social protection of the poor and vulnerable is a global concern and co-operation is needed at all levels.

As part of efforts to build dialogue and to better support social protection in developing countries, Jukka Pirttilä presented on how data integration can be made a reality at a meeting for EU Member States and EFTA Countries held 17-18 January 2017 in Bonn, Germany. Special attention was paid to the Sustainable Development Goals, with Pirttilä talking about UNU-WIDER’s ongoing SOUTHMOD project and the principles of microsimulation as well as the data challenges faced.
