Next Practices – Innovations in the COVID-19 Social Protection Responses and Beyond

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Nov 25, 2021 | UNDP

The COVID-19 pandemic has required large, rapid responses from governments to mitigate the negative effects of the crisis on livelihoods. Almost all countries required innovative policies to deliver social protection to persons excluded from benefits, like informal-sector workers, refugees, and migrants. This UNDP report describes the social protection innovations implemented in response to the crisis, many of which can be leveraged to build more inclusive and sustainable systems in the medium and long term. It draws attention to innovative lessons from countries in the Global South on how to include traditionally excluded groups in social protection, especially in times of crisis.
