    BRICS countries (Brazil, Russian Federation, India, China and South Africa) have taken the lead in recent global policy dialogues on economic, social and environmental issues. They are home to 3.1 billion people, representing 42 percent of the world’s population. Combined, BRICS have achieved the Millennium Development Goal of halving the prevalence of undernourishment by 2015. Building on their experiences in reducing hunger, BRICS countries have also been instrumental in initiating mechanisms of South-South cooperation by supporting and promoting the establishment of nutrition-sensitive social protection systems in other developing countries.

    Enhancing Regional Capacities to Design and Implement Nutrition-Sensitive Social Protection Programme to Reduce Food Insecurity and Malnutrition - TCP/INT/3701 2021
    Also available in:

    Despite important progress made in the fight against poverty and hunger, significant challenges remain Progress on reducing the incidence of hunger differs from region to region and country to country The four target countries of this project, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Senegal and Zambia, are among those that continue to face persistent poverty, food insecurity and malnutrition In response, they have been experimenting with approaches that seek to link social protection to a variety of sectors, such as agriculture, health and sanitation, with the aim to improve the livelihoods of the poorest and reduce hunger Social protection programmes have proved to be a critical factor in tackling hunger, however, there are important knowledge gaps regarding the operational options of linking them with broader agriculture and Food Security and Nutrition ( interventions, and the results these linkages can achieve As social protection has rapidly expanded in the past two decades, these linkages are yet to be further understood and debated Generating, systematizing and disseminating concrete country knowledge on this approach to nutrition sensitive social protection is therefore an important contribution to national governments and other stakeholders across regions Against this background, the governments of the above mentioned four target countries requested that FAO support them to design and implement improved nutrition sensitive social protection interventions, and to assist them in moving towards more integrated approaches to tackle FSN and reduce poverty.

    Introduction to gender-sensitive social protection programming to combat rural poverty: Why is it important and what does it mean? – FAO Technical Guide 1
    A Toolkit on gender-sensitive social protection programmes to combat rural poverty and hunger
    2018
    Many social protection programmes, including cash transfers, public works programmes and asset transfers, target women as main beneficiaries or recipients of benefits. Extending social protection to rural populations has great potential for fostering rural women’s economic empowerment. However, to tap into this potential, more needs to be done. There is much scope for making social protection policies and programmes more gender sensitive and for better aligning them with agricultural and rural development policies to help address gender inequalities. Recognizing this potential and capitalizing on existing evidence, FAO seeks to enhance the contribution of social protection to gender equality and women’s empowerment by providing country-level support through capacity development, knowledge generation and programme support.To move forward this agenda, FAO has developed the Technical Guidance Toolkit on Gender-sensitive Social Protection Programmes to Combat Rural Poverty and Hunger. The Toolkit is designed to support SP and gender policy-makers and practitioners in their efforts to systematically apply a gender lens to SP programmes in ways that are in line with global agreements and FAO commitments to expand inclusive SP systems for rural populations. The Toolkit focuses on the role of SP in reducing gendered social inequalities, and rural poverty and hunger.
