Webinar

17 June 2021

UNICEF, IFRC, FCDO

The benefits of social protection and humanitarian actors working together in different ways across the “nexus” are well-recognised. To address the wide range of needs (in the last year, often pandemic-related), and particularly those of a socio-economic nature, the use of cash has been the response of choice for governments expanding their social protection systems as well as for humanitarian actors in a range of sectors.

This webinar, which was structured as a panel discussion, provided the opportunity to hear from one of the world’s leading humanitarian donors – the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG ECHO) – and partners in relation to implementing its vision for linking humanitarian cash and social protection in two different contexts. The expert speakers have provided insights into two different mechanisms that are being adopted in order to forge these linkages.

Panellists:

  • Isabelle Pelly, DG ECHO
  • Quentin Le Gallo, DG ECHO
  • Alessandro Bini, The Somalia Cash Consortium
  • Massimo La Rosa, DG ECHO
  • Manuel Rodriguez Pumarol, UNICEF Jordan
  • Meredith Byrne, ILO Jordan
