The ongoing digital transformation of economies and societies holds many promises to spur innovation, generate efficiencies, and improve services, and in doing so boost more inclusive and sustainable growth as well as enhance well-being. But these benefits go hand-in-hand with disruptions. Our interactions with one another and with society more broadly are being transformed, as are the nature and structure of organisations and markets, raising important issues around jobs and skills, privacy, security, and how to ensure that technological changes benefit society as a whole, among others.
The Information Center on Social Protection (CIPS) is a website that provides information in Portuguese on the social protection area (www.cipsocial.org).
Its main purpose is to, on the one hand, respond to the knowledge needs of the Portuguese Speaking Countries: Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, São Tome and Principe, Timor-Leste. On the other hand, make available information on the existing social protection realities of these countries.
