Project Results

The main outputs of this project are:

1. Evaluation and systematisation of best practices in social protection policies and programmes in Latin America and the Caribbean, including the development of two studies and their respective webinars: ‘Políticas nacionales para la licencia de maternidad y paternidad y apoyo de la lactancia materna en el lugar de trabajo’ (forthcoming) and ‘Niños en movimiento: dimensión y respuesta pública desde la protección social’ (forthcoming).

2. Knowledge management and development of social protection in Latin America and the Caribbean, including the elaboration of UNICEF’s social protection strategy for the region.

The IPC-IG started the elaboration of two research reports on social protection policies and programmes in Latin America and the Caribbean: one on maternity and paternity leaves and policies supporting breastfeeding; and another on access to social protection systems in the context of forced displacement in Latin America—with a special focus on the situation of Venezuelan children. In addition, the Centre is supporting UNICEF in the elaboration of a social protection strategy for the region. The first report is already out (see below).
