MENA Regional Event: Linking Social Protection & Humanitarian Cash Assistance
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated longstanding efforts to better link social protection and humanitarian CVA. The devastating economic impacts of the crisis have led governments worldwide to massively scale up social protection and, in turn, humanitarian actors are increasingly working alongside governments to support these national safety-nets.
But in many crisis-affected countries, social protection systems are weak and under-funded, with limited coverage. In others still, many of those worst-affected – migrants, refugees and other marginalised groups – are not included.
CaLP’s State of the World’s Cash report finds that more than half of practitioners agree that a lack of coordination between governments and humanitarian actors is holding back further progress.
In this online event, we will bring together experts on this topic from across the region to address this gap and understand the experience and good practice that exists in the region, as well as key challenges from a multi-stakeholder perspective. The panel will represent a diverse range of stakeholders and is expected to reflect on the issue from development, humanitarian, donor, government and national society perspectives.
We will be building on our previous work with key social protection stakeholders in the region. This is intended to complement existing efforts and initiatives in the region and promote cross-learning in this critical area.
