Lessons learned from the COVID-19 crisis: moving towards inclusive social protection for persons with disabilities?


8 July 2021


More than a year after the start of the pandemic, and in the midst of continuous crisis in many low- and middle-income countries, the event sought to take stock of the social protection response in support to persons with disabilities, the lessons learned based on case studies, consultation and engagement with social protection professionals and organisations of persons with disabilities.

This webinar provided: 1) an overview of the trends in social protection response for persons with disabilities and the lessons learned about the readiness of social protection systems; 2) an overview of ongoing initiatives that can contribute to make social protection systems more supportive to persons with disabilities and more shock-responsive; 3) a reflection on the evolution of engagement of persons with disabilities and their representative organisations and steps required to foster participation; 4) an update about normative framework evolution and upcoming consultation on technical guidance development.
