The Global Coalition for Social Protection Floors

 

SPF

In June 2012, the International Labour Conference adopted a Recommendation for a Social Protection Floor (SPF). Earlier in 2012, FES Geneva had brought together a number of NGOs from different parts of the world that issued a Joint Statement in support of a strong ILO recommendation. In the meantime, the recommendation has been signed by 60 NGOs and tabled at the relevant negotiating committee at the International Labour Conference.

Many NGOs involved in this process want to keep this momentum for future joint activities. Each NGO has its own focus, geographically and/or with regards to content. What they have in common is the wish to achieve real social protection on the ground based on human rights for all people in all parts of the world. They therefore decided to form a joint Coalition for a Social Protection Floor.
