International Conference on Social Protection in contexts of Fragility & Forced Displacement
Due to the high demand for the conference, ten sessions were livestreamed on socialprotection.org.
You can watch the recordings here.
The programme is organised around two themes, namely:
- Effective social protection in fragile contexts;
- The needs of forcibly displaced populations and host communities, and the role of social protection
Across both themes, there will be a strong focus on building synergies across the development and humanitarian divide, including lessons for governments, humanitarian and development actors, including donors.
