Special on Social Protection: Malawi's Joint Programme aims to support the Government of Malawi to adapt the national social protection system to meet emergency food needs and reduce the vulnerability of those most at risk of food insecurity by 2022, while strengthening the social protection system for all vulnerable households across the lifecycle.
Leveraging the expertise of three implementing UN agencies to accomplish its targets, UNICEF, WFP, and ILO have in-country and regional expertise in providing direct social protection system implementation and technical assistance. The programme combines advancing an innovative Shock-Sensitive Social Protection (SSSP) prototype with reinforced financial structures and the transformation of existing policies into legal frameworks to enhance the social protection system to be more robust, comprehensive, and sustainable, leaving no one behind.
