The initiative, designed to share social protection responses to the pandemic, has produced newsletters, a webinars series and an online community to discuss and systematize all the information gathered since March 2020. The initiative finished with the Global e-Conference “Turning the COVID-19 crisis into an opportunity: What’s next for social protection?", on 5, 6 and 8 October.
