Development Pathways today announces we are launching an international training course on inclusive social protection at Lake Naivasha, Kenya.
If social protection is to be effective, it must be inclusive and implemented as a right of all citizens. Yet, convincing policymakers to invest can be challenging. As a consequence, too many people worldwide are still unable to access social protection. Therefore, Development Pathways is launching a training course aimed at giving participants an in-depth understanding of social protection so that they are able to effectively make the case for increased investment in inclusive social protection within their countries and organisations.
The social security training course will be held from 4th to 8th November 2019 at Enashipai Resort & Spa, close to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, and will comprise three days of core modules alongside two days of electives in a range of topics. These include the political economy of social protection, social and economic analysis, and fiscal sustainability.
The course, Inclusive Social Protection: Making the Case will be delivered by a team of experts who are at the forefront of global social protection policy debates and who bring a wealth of experience of working across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Pacific. Full details on the trainers Alexandra Barrantes, Anna McCord, Stephen Kidd, Matthew Greenslade, Ian Orton, Shea McClanahan, Bjorn Gelders and Richard Chirchir, the approach to the training, the details of the venue and how to secure a place are available on a dedicated website.
