This webinar provided an opportunity to hear from humanitarian and social protection actors about their experiences in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The speakers provided insights from responses in Albania, Swaziland and Madagascar, shedding light on a number of issues including: (1) The point at which engagement between humanitarian and social protection actors/systems was made (or should have been made); (2) Decision-making processes in relation to collaborative action, and how timely these processes were; (3) Stages and levels of collaboration – policy, programme design, and implementation; and (4) key successes, challenges and learning for the future.
