A three-day international conference on Social Protection: Building Effective and Sustainable Systems for Equitable Growth will take place from 15th to 17th December 2014 in Arusha, Tanzania. The conference will gather policy-makers, researchers and practitioners directly involved in the planning, design, and implementation of social protection programmes and systems, with the objective of encouraging South-South exchange of cutting-edge knowledge and best practices. The Arusha Conference intends to specifically harness this learning and use it to support Tanzania’s ongoing efforts in scaling up its Productive Social Safety Net (PSSN) Programme to reach all extreme poor by mid-2015. Further, this will contribute to the strengthening of social protection systemsincluding strong engagement of key social sectors, and inform the next steps of the social protection agenda in the country and the region.
