Considering the growing interest of practitioners, combined with a context of global economic slowdown, this webinar looked at the need for more evidence-based research and knowledge- sharing opportunities in the area of financing social protection. The event was the second in the “Fiscal space for social protection: knowledge sharing initiative Webinar Series”, organised by the IPC-IG and HelpAge International, which aims to contribute towards fiscally sustainable social protection systems. It covered the following topics: the coverage gap of oldage social protection; contributory and non-contributory programmes (merging schemes for system-wide effectiveness and sustainability); and extending social security to the informal economy.
