There is no one single definition of ‘social protection’ as it takes different forms and degrees in different countries. The expression covers all mechanisms that allow people to withstand the ‘risks of life’ (illness, old age, unemployment) and poverty. These services are in theory set by law and seen as rights. In recent years, social protection has increasingly been seen as an approach that allows one to fight more effectively against food insecurity.
