e-Coaching on Social Protection: Towards Responsive Systems - Cohort II

As governments around the world take urgent action to save lives and protect livelihoods from the COVID-19 pandemic, leveraging, adapting or introducing new social protection measures are central to country immediate and medium-term responses. With one in two people in the world not benefiting from any form of social protection, this is an unprecedented challenge. Drawing on the ILO's knowledge and expertise, this e-Learning program offers you the opportunity to further strengthen your competences on social protection in the context of the global emergency, learn about best practices and get on the job technical support through e-coaching. As a result, you will be able to devise more responsive and sustainable social protection interventions to help your country weather the current health crisis and mitigate the longer-term social and economic impacts on the most vulnerable groups.

This new e-learning programme offers a flexible and phased learning experience to enable a wide range of professionals to better respond to changing social protection needs in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

-Social protection fundamentals: principles, concepts and challenges in developing and implementing responsive social protection interventions in the current context
