This programme builds on the Recommendation concerning national floors of social protection, 2012 (No. 202), in June 2012. National social protection floors guarantee a basic level of protection for all residents and children. Countries should also progressively provide higher levels of coverage to
as many people as possible. Social protection floors have been endorsed by UN member States, supported by the G-20 and acknowledged at many other forums.
For WSM partners in Asia, three countries are concerned:
– India: extension of social protection to workers in the informal economy,
– Indonesia: implementation of the new Social Security Provider Law, implementation of a single window service in 100 districts and
– Cambodia: implementation of a health insurance scheme and a single window service in Siem Reap province
