Building Roofs and Raising Floors Through Inclusive Digital Technologies and a Global Fund for Social Protection - CSocD 59 Side Event
The Global Coalition for Social Protection Floors (GCSPF) and the Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) invite you to a 75-minute side event with speakers from the Governments of Finland and Belgium, the United Nations, civil society, academia, and lived experience. Speakers will explore the diverse and interconnecting perspectives on social protection and homelessness, and discuss why the Global Fund for Social Protection is necessary to deliver to ensure that all have the right to social protection. Speakers will specifically consider how digital technology can extend social protection floors to those who are living without roofs. Examples include the sponsored use of cellphones that ensure a minimum of connectedness and a critical link to society. Insights and conclusions will be inputted into the ongoing work of the Commission of Social Development and ongoing discussions about the Global Fund for Social Protection and the need to include those who are homeless in social protection.
