Taking place under the auspices of the 2020 UN High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), this event will highlight efforts to address the socio-economic impact of COVID-19, with a focus on protecting people, targeting the poorest and most vulnerable, and the SDGs as our compass. It will showcase examples of the many faces of social protection, from insurance and assistance programmes, to micro/small business policies, digital solutions and basic income. Join a discussion on the future of social protection, and practical steps to turn the crisis into an opportunity for a concerted push towards a sustainable, inclusive and resilient future.
