Newsletter Joint SDG Fund COVID-19 MPTF - September 2021
27 October 2021
This monthly update aims to provide brief progress and result updates of the implementation of the Joint SDG Fund Adaptive Social Protection (ASP) to donor governments. Under the leadership of the UN Resident Coordinator, UN in Indonesia is managing 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. As the COVID-19 MPTF closed in March 2021, this edition will highlight 2 program activities under the Joint SDG Fund.
