Global Coalition for Social Protection Floors (GCSPF)

The Global Coalition for Social Protection Floors (GCSPF) is a network of more than 100 civil society organizations, trade unions and think tanks. We promote universal social protection as key instrument to achieve the overarching social goal of the global development agenda.

In view of the harm from the COVID-19 pandemic, with food insecurity, poverty, inequality and loss of livelihoods rising globally, it is essential that national social protection floors are made available to all people – through national and international solidarity. While recognising that the foremost responsibility for social protection lies at country level, the pandemic puts a spotlight on the need for international solidarity. What is needed is the creation of a solidarity based Global Fund for Social Protection to support countries design, implement and, in specific cases, finance national floors of social protection. It is the adequate multilateral initiative needed to respond to Covid-19 and to build a better future.
