Resumen: This report comes at a time when discussions about the future of social protection are particularly active, both in the policy and development community and in mainstream media. An important milestone in support of these discussions was the launching of the Global Partnership for Universal Social Protection to Achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda (USP2030) at the UN in 2016. At the other end of the spectrum, a number of countries often feel pressed by economic downturns to simply cut social protection benefits, with a grave risk of curtailing rights, increasing poverty and thus risking a vicious cycle of underinvestment and underperformance. By working together to produce this report, UNICEF and ILO hope to shed light on how the move towards universal social protection should, and can, better encompass the rights, concerns and specific issues of children and their families. Their well-being is critical to every country s short- and longterm development, and the approaches and ideas described here are also relevant to the current debates under way about the future shape of social protection as a whole.
