ABSTRACT

This paper was commissioned by the UN Children’s Fund’s (UNICEF’s) regional office in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). UNICEF’s rationale for engagement in social protection is grounded in its commitment to human rights, and recognition of the contribution social protection can make to realising the rights of all children, and particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. This essentially desk-based exercise maps key social protection initiatives and stakeholders at national level in the MENA region, with a specific focus on child-sensitive social protection.
