  5. Measuring financing gaps in social protection for achieving SDG target 1.3: Global estimates and strategies for developing countries [Executive summary]

    25 November 2019

    Social security is a human right but it is not yet a reality. Only 45 per cent of the global population are effectively covered by at least one social protection benefit, while the remaining 55 per cent – as many as 4 billion people – are unprotected. Closing the coverage gap will require additional investments in social protection, which can and should be achieved by increasing the “fiscal space” for social protection.

  9. Statistics for SDG indicator 10.7.1: Guidelines for their Collection

    30 October 2019

    This set of Guidelines for the collection of statistics for SDG indicator 10.7.1 on reducing recruitment costs, identifies a number of conceptual issues and definitions with respect to measuring recruitment costs borne by an employee as a proportion of monthly income earned in the country of destination. These guidelines have been produced by the ILO and the WB, as co-custodians of SDG Indicator 10.7.1, with the support of the EU funded ILO-REFRAME project and the Global Knowledge Partnership on Migration and Development (KNOMAD). They have been validated through a consultative process with National Statistical Offices and, as a result of this process the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on Sustainable Development Goals (IAEG-SDG) moved SDG indicator 10.7.1 from Tier 3 to Tier 2, in October 2019.
