Newsletter Joint SDG Fund COVID-19 MPTF - January 2021
Under the leadership of the UN Resident Coordinator, UN Indonesia is managing two Joint Programmes (JPs) on social protection, namely the abovementioned Joint SDG Fund and the COVID-19 MPTF. Social protection is the core protection scheme for both programmes given its proven ability as an effective policy strategy to support populations in the aftershock of a natural disaster or crises.
Its purpose is to prevent affected communities from falling deeper into poverty and facing greater poverty-associated vulnerabilities. For this first edition, key contributions are presented from both funds throughout the first year of implementation (2020).
