The time has come for us to look more closely at how social protection landscapes used to be before the COVID-19 crisis, more specifically in India and Pakistan, and how they have been adapted to tackle the ongoing crisis. This webinar discussed a vast set of features ranging from social expenditure profiles, legal frameworks for child-sensitive social protection, the actual design of flagship initiatives and how child- and gender-sensitive they are. It also contextualised these features in view of findings from impact evaluations and took stock of core COVID-19 responses from social protection.
