Informal Economy Podcast: Social Protection - #16 Challenges To Protect Informal Workers Livelihoods In Peru And Mexico

In this month, the Informal Economy Podcast: Social Protection tries to understand how the livelihoods of informal workers are being affected in two of the countries in Latin America most hit in the region by the Covid-19 crisis: Mexico and Peru. We invited two guests who are working closely with informal workers. From Mexico, Tania Espinoza, Mexico City Focal City Coordinator at WIEGO. And from Peru, we bring Carmen Roca, Lima Focal City Coordinator, also from WIEGO. They will analyse the main challenges on the implementation of the emergency cash-grant policies to protect informal workers income, the problems of government responses and some of the possible solutions to address these issues.
