Collaborators to this initiative—a ‘thank you’ note


The COVID-19 outbreak has affected the world in unprecedented ways and its ramifications are still not fully known.

As social protection is being increasingly recognised as an essential element in both short- and long- term responses to the crisis, the documentation of best practices and knowledge-sharing efforts have gained special importance, supporting governments and policymakers in the design of more efficient programmes and policies.  

In times of turmoil and uncertainty, our sense of purpose and community is of paramount importance. We understand that collaboration is essential to our work, and thus we would like to express our sincerest appreciation to everyone who has collaborated with this initiative.

Professionals and institutions from all over the world have volunteered to map, curate, organise, produce, translate and disseminate high-quality content on COVID-19 and social protection through this initiative.

On behalf of the International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG), the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) of Australia and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), we would like to thank the following collaborators for their generous and comprehensive support.
