Online Event: Leave No One Behind Social Protection Conference

Social protection is a human right and an economic and social necessity. Social protection benefits and services are powerful tools to combat inter-generational poverty and inequality, and to invest in social and economic development.

The Leave No One Behind Social Protection Conference was designed to Promote the development of shock-responsive social protection systems, including their design, administration, monitoring and evaluation by:

  • Increasing awareness among key stakeholders on the socio-economic fallout and the social protection responses: gender inclusion, vulnerable groups, migrants, informal economy;
  • Exploring financing options for shock-responsive social protection systems in the Eastern Caribbean.
  • Creating a platform for high-level discussion and ownership of the OECS Regional Social Inclusion and Social Protection Strategy.
  • Examining labour market displacements and emergent trends and their effects on the new economy, as well as responses from social security organizations
