Highlights

Social protection has emerged as a major new focus in efforts to reduce poverty and promote human capital accumulation around the world. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development aims to end poverty in all its forms by expanding social protection for all, with SDG Target 1.3 aiming to ‘implement nationally appropriate social protection systems towards that objective.

The international conference on ‘Resilient Social Protection for an Inclusive Development’ held in Kathmandu on 18-19 September 2019 aimed to support the Government of Nepal, and its relevant Ministries, to deliver in its vision of a core package of social protection for all and help Nepal become a more prosperous nation, with a focus on the next generation and the most vulnerable.

This volume contains the proceedings of the research papers presented at the conference along with a summary report of the parallel policy dialogues.
