In the past months, we have seen an enormous increase on the attention given to social protection worldwide, due to the social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The IPC-IG, GIZ, DFAT and socialprotection.org have been supporting this agenda with the “Social Protection Reponses to COVID-19” task force. Through an Online Community, a newsletter and a webinar series, social protection practitioners from all over the world discussed solutions to the challenges brought up by the pandemic. This task force has facilitated the sharing of information among practitioners and countries that have been contributing with useful lessons for the future of social protection. To close this initiative with a flourish, socialprotection.org will host the Global e-Conference “Turning the COVID-19 crisis into an opportunity: what’s next for social protection?” on 5, 6 and 8 October 2020.
