Child-sensitive Social Protection Briefing Paper

Child-sensitive Social Protection (CSSP) is an approach to social protection to realize the rights of children. CSSP helps families cope with chronic poverty, stresses, and shocks, and enables them to invest on an adequate and continuing basis in their children’s well-being. CSSP can be implemented in both humanitarian and development contexts, and across sectoral areas, to advance the rights and well-being of all children, particularly the most disadvantaged children. This involves designing and implementing specific policies and programmes that directly address children's needs and rights and improve child development, as well as more widely ensuring that all social protection programmes are child-sensitive, by planning to maximise beneficial impacts and minimise any potential harms for children.

This policy brief, compiled by the Global Coalition to End Child Poverty, defines the Child-sensitive Social Protection framework and how can be/is being implemented by partners.
