I am pleased to share with you the publication "Social protection assessment based national dialogue: A good practices guide" (ABND guide).
Building social protection floors (SPFs) is a long and continuous process. The ABND exercise is the first step towards the achievement of nationally defined SPFs. It helps formulate relevant and feasible policy options, based on an assessment of the social protection situation, cost estimations and national dialogue.
The ABND guide provides step-by-step support for conducting an ABND exercise. It can be used for self-learning, delivering training workshops and conducting full-fledged ABND exercises. The guide proves most useful for line ministries, social security institutions, social partners, civil society organizations, UN agencies and development partners, social protection taskforces and experts in the field.
The guide is now available as a textbook (publication available in low and high resolutions) and an e-box (interactive website with PowerPoint presentations, exercises and tutorials). You will find more information on the ABND guide in the brochure.
