General

This programme builds on the 2014-16 programme in the ASEAN region to promote social protection for an increasingly vulnerable group in Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos, namely marginalised workers. At local level the programme obtained encouraging successes. Now the focus will also be put on increased effectiveness of national advocacy for more inclusive social protection frameworks, implemented by capacitated citizens who will exert their rights. We will obtain national impact by using a combination of strategies: (1) working with a wider constituency covering more than 774 marginalised workers' groups, (2) creation of national and widely supported advocacy coalitions for specific demands for social protection, (3) ensuring that representatives are empowered for social dialogue thanks to credible arguments, competences and members' support, (4) ability to grasp or create advocacy opportunities via media, public campaigns and lobby-work, supported by a power and stakeholder analysis, (5) cooperation across borders in regional networks to jointly monitor the roll out of the ASEAN Action Plan for Social Protection, (6) a joint focus on 3 crucial issues: increased inclusiveness, reduced gender gap and increased financing of social protection, and (7) use of peer pressure amongst ASEAN countries resulting from the ASEAN Action Plan. We will work with 15 partners in 3 countries and with 1 regional network, all supported by 6 stakeholders that bring expertise, competences or capacity building. We expect positive impact in terms of increased social and economic resilience for about 200.000 citizens.
