Social Protection refers to all efforts aimed at preventing, reducing, and dealing with lifelong risks and challenges of social shocks and vulnerabilities faced by all citizens. The Government of Indonesia is committed to continously improving the social protection system and increasing its investment in social assistance. However, various challenges remain. A number of programs that have been implemented have not been able to comprehensively overcome the problems of vulnerability of all groups, including the elderly, people with disabilities, and the working age group. This seminar will discuss the results of the analysis and further advocacy on recommendations and proposals for improvement of the social protection system.
