An integrated and digital social protection information system – outcomes, challenges & risks


Developing a digital and integrated information system is a crucial step in building a national social protection system. It enables the flow and management of information within the social protection sector and between social protection and other sectors such as education, health, agriculture, humanitarian and disaster risk management (DRM). 

A digital and integrated social protection information system is expected to better serve the needs of the people, by focusing on the following outcomes: Inclusion, efficiency and effectiveness, accuracy and integrity, accountability and citizen empowerment. 

The webinar was based on a recently published Concept Paper and presented potential outcomes, key challenges, key risks and the building blocks of a digital and integrated information system including critical design and implementation choices.
