Online Community
The COVID-19 outbreak requires responses that extend far beyond the health sector, including measures to assist people in need and protect them from falling into poverty. Access the COVID-19 Online Community for up-to-date, global, regional and country-level content on social protection policies and operational measures in response to the pandemic. Since the beginning of this initiative, the Community has had more than 17,000 accesses. We suggest that you regularly visit three sections of this Online Community: the first one offers a compilation of mappings and resources elaborated by various institutions; the second features the answers for questions asked during our webinars; and the third one gathers webinars hosted by other platforms and organizations, which are not featured in this newsletter. Become a member, join the discussions and share your thoughts!

This initiative comprises an Online Community, a webinar series and a weekly newsletterall of which feature worldwide efforts on social protection responses to COVID-19. It is a joint effort initiated by the International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) of Australia, in collaboration with the online platform.
