This online event raised the question of how to bring a system’s approach to live:
- What does it require to move from a set of social protection programmes to an overall social protection system? Why have some countries been successful, and others are lagging behind?
- Does a system’s approach always mean that programmes have to be interlinked and how is this feasible in resource and capacity constrained countries?
- Which social protection programmes can and should be combined? Should they be of the same kind or of different kinds?
- How can different programmes best be co-ordinated and harmonised with each other? Which governance framework is conducive?
- How much and what kind of information do they have to exchange? Is data privacy a concern?
- What are the criteria of a system’s-based approach?
