This webinar presented concrete experiences on innovative options for reaching increased and sustained social protection financing. It started with a presentation that provides insight on the Programme’s approach and interventions to improve the linkages between social protection and public finance management, in alignment with international social protection principles. The session was followed by country experiences presented by the Programme teams in Nepal and Senegal, focused on methodologies, tools, lessons learnt and current challenges on how to improve the link between Social Protection and Public finance management, especially in the context of COVID-19 and recovery; how to accompany the national decision-making process to identify priorities and financing options towards a universal and adequate social protection coverage; and, how to strengthen the role of social partners and civil society organizations to strengthen social protection budgeting and financing.
