The UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) has just launched the report, “The Social Panorama of Latin America 2009.” The study links trends in poverty and income distribution with social protection systems, placing special emphasis on how these systems have responded to the social impacts of the current crisis and on medium- and long-term projections. It focuses in particular on the impact of public transfers, trends in social spending, the mechanisms by which social vulnerability is reproduced and changing intergenerational and gender relations.
