SPACE Identifying Practical Options for Linking Humanitarian Assistance and Social Protection in the COVID-19 Response

30 September 2020 — By Daniel Longhurst and Gabrielle Smith, with Valentina Barca, Karin Seyfert, Simon Little, Calum McLean, Sophie Pongracz, and input from experts on the Social Protection Approaches to COVID-19: Expert Advice Helpline (SPACE)

This short note examines the relationship between the humanitarian assistance sector and the routine social protection sector in response to COVID-19. Whilst a variety of guidance is being developed to support humanitarian practitioners around the response to the pandemic, less material exists that guides humanitarian practitioners on how to practically link their responses to social protection (SP) systems and programmes in the COVID-19 response.
