The Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognizes everyone’s right to social security, and there is a growing consensus about the benefits that good social protection coverage can provide.

Yet, global estimates show that only a fraction of the population has adequate social protection coverage. Countries around the world are engaged in debate over how they can best adapt their social protection systems to meet the needs of ageing populations, the demands of globalization and changes in economic and employment conditions. The training activities of the Centre strengthen the capacity of ILO constituents and other ILO stakeholders to take part in this debate and to develop concrete strategies and approaches to promote access to social protection for all.
