UN Women: Making national social protection floors work for women

This brief synthesizes research findings, analysis and policy recommendations on making social protection floors work for women. Much can be done in terms of integrating gender into the design and implementation of programmes that promote income security across the life cycle, including cash transfers, public works programmes, and pensions. This report argues that to provide long-term solutions, however, these efforts must be part of a broader package, including policies that enable women to access decent work—which remains the main source of income for most working-age adults and their families.
