Webinar

24 March 2022 

GIZ, IPC-IG 

The event was devised to: 

  • Provide a background of what the current scenarios for low- and middle-income countries look like, including some data-informed simulations of which countries may be most affected – and a quick reminder of previous food and fuel crisis impacts 
  • Outline what adaptations in national social protection systems and programmes have proven to be powerful tools to complement humanitarian action as well as broader macroeconomic measures and efforts to diversify food supply 
  • Discuss the most pressing investments and measures to strengthen the adaptability of social protection systems now, so a large-scale humanitarian crisis could be cushioned
