Assessing portability of social protection & services among child migrants in India

CPR is working with UNICEF India to understand the impact of social protection schemes and measures undertaken by the Government of India on child migrants. Spread across five states (Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Maharashtra and Gujarat), the study will examine government responses in the wake of the COVID–19 pandemic and resulting migrant crisis, as well as following measures to improve access to services and portability of social benefits, particularly children. The study will focus on the most vulnerable seasonal migrants, examining social protection measures for children migrating with parents, independent child migrants, as well as those who are left behind while parents migrate out for work.
