These are the presentation slides for Side Event 2: Expanding Social Protection to Decrease Inequality at the Global e-Conference Turning the COVID-19 crisis into an opportunity: What's next for social protection? The session provided a view on what is needed to scale up social protection systems to decrease inequality and meet the challenge from the economic crisis following Covid-19, taking as a starting point in experiences from Europe on how different social protection schemes impact inequalities, linking to wider lessons from the latest decade of expansion of social protection in Asia and Africa with a specific example from Kenya showing the role of national governments and links to the role of international development agencies for supporting the vision of Universal Social Protection 2030.
