Description

Social Protection: Lands Of Blossoming Hope – Policymaking specially for the social sector in distressed lands, as I know from my own experience, is never easy. The author has done a commendable job in putting together her experiences in some of the most impoverished lands in Asia and Africa where she worked as a UN official. The book makes fascinating reading. It is all the more relevant today as the poor are still forced to suffer for want of any kind of social protection.
