Social Protection for Refugees (Resource Space)

Welcome to our living resource space dedicated to Social Protection for Refugees!

According to the UNHCR, the number of forcibly displaced people continued to rise in 2020, despite travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 crisis. Several crises are starting or longstanding while we all try to respond to the pandemic and its socioeconomic impact. Massive international displacements are currently occurring mainly from Syria, Venezuela, Afghanistan, South Sudan, and Myanmar. During the response to the pandemic, a recurrent issue on the importance to link humanitarian action and social protection is essential: provision of access to health and protection services for forcibly displaced people.

On this 2021 World Refugee Day (20 June), the Online Community Social Protection in Crisis Contexts invites all members to discuss and bring up-to-date knowledge to advance responses concerning one of the hardest-hit groups of society.

This page is a living resource space, which will soon be able to be edited by all members of the community. Members who wish to collaborate with content, can upload documents to the library of the community or share files and links via dgroups discussion or at the resource basket available here ( Volunteers will then update the page.
