The case could not be made better...
The next concrete step that policy makers around the world need to do, is putting the Social Protection Floor as a tangible, realisable, affordable and effective Goal into the the post 2015 Sustainable Development agenda- after having adopted the SPF unanimously as a social development strategy already in 2012.
So if the consensus is there, the language is there, the case is made, what stops us from giving social protection as a social, societal and economic necessity into the goals that the global community wants to achieve in the next two decades.
There is one thing that we can all do today: sign up to the online petition of the New York based NGOs and the Global Coalition for the Social Protection Floor. We want a million signatures before the UN open working group publishes its proposals for the SGDs later this year.
