Webinar Presentation - Digital social protection: innovation for effectiveness

Slide presentation of the webinar held on 3 October 2019. Although social protection is not a new topic on the global agenda, the past decades have observed a steady growth in interest and actors involved, opening ways to new forms of delivering programmes and policies tailored to local contexts (i.e. payment tools, MIS). This webinar is dedicated to showcase the latest innovations/technologies on social protection and how old practices were adapted to achieve more effective results. In the context of current drive for universal social protection, panellists will address issues related to the impact of digital solutions in social protection programmes, from design to implementation. The focus is on key trends on use of technology across the delivery chain (information systems, payment systems, digital approaches to grievances, linkage to digital ID etc). The webinar will also address the risks related to these developments.
