IFRC, UNICEF, DFID, Social Protection Approaches to COVID-19 – Expert Advice Helpline (SPACE) 

This webinar was framed around the humanitarian and social protection delivery chain (developed along three key areaspolicy, programme design, and administration/delivery), presenting learning and practical examples from various contexts. The practical examples shed light on evolving areas of technical interest and raised issues for discussion regarding when linkages may or may not be appropriate, reviewing successes and challenges. 

The panellists and organisers created a document with useful resources that can be found here.
