The road to recovery

This live session engaged UN thought-leaders on social protection in a conversation about what recovery will look like and what role the UN should play in shifting the paradigm to mobilise support for universal social protection.

How can we work together to ensure that the unexpected momentum on social protection is not lost? How can we coordinate behind a common agenda, capitalising on what we have learned from this crisis so that we can be better prepared for future shocks? What challenges lie ahead as we edge towards the road to recovery?

The panellists shared their views on these thorny questions as we looked ahead to the future of social protection.
