Webinar - What role can social protection play in responding to humanitarian emergencies? Findings from a global study
Register Online for the upcoming Webinar hosted by Socialprotection.org to join a presentation of the global findings of the Shock-Responsive Social Protection Systems research. This project is financed by DFID and led by Oxford Policy Management (OPM) in collaboration with ODI, CaLP and INASP. Drawing on case studies in Pakistan, Mozambique, Mali, the Sahel, Philippines and Lesotho, as well as on global evidence.
Discussants will aim to provide answers to the following questions:
When and how can social protection systems better respond to major shocks in low-income countries and conflict-affected states, thus reducing the need for humanitarian responses?
What features of programme design and implementation determine the effectiveness and efficiency of response?
What are the opportunities for coordination between social protection, disaster risk management and humanitarian response?
Please note this learning event will be held on 14 January 2018, at 2 pm (GMT 0 - London). Both presentation and record of the webinar will be later published in both communities of practice administrated by the Guidance Package.
