International Conference on Social Protection in contexts of Fragility & Forced Displacement

Due to the high demand for the conference, ten sessions were livestreamed on

You can watch the recordings here

The programme is organised around two themes, namely:

  • Effective social protection in fragile contexts;
  • The needs of forcibly displaced populations and host communities, and the role of social protection 

Across both themes, there will be a strong focus on building synergies across the development and humanitarian divide, including lessons for governments, humanitarian and development actors, including donors.
