The world is very different today than in 2001 when the first World Bank Social Protection & Labor Strategy was launched. Not only is it increasingly recognized that social protection is essential in times of crisis but also that in a world constantly buffeted by change, well-performing social protection systems are indispensable ingredients of sustainable growth. To respond more effectively to the emerging, fast-changing and challenging global demands expected in the next decade, the World Bank is preparing a new Social Protection & Labor Strategy. We are consulting with a broad range of governments, development partners, civil society organizations, private sector, academics and other stakeholders to discuss first-hand how the World Bank can reduce poverty and inequality and help build human potential.
