As governments around the world take urgent action to save lives and protect livelihoods from the COVID-19 pandemic, leveraging, adapting or introducing new social protection measures are central to country immediate and medium-term responses. With one in two people in the world not benefiting from any form of social protection, this is an unprecedented challenge. Drawing on the ILO's knowledge and expertise, this e-Learning program offers you the opportunity to further strengthen your competences on social protection in the context of the global emergency, learn about best practices and get on the job technical support through e-coaching. As a result, you will be able to devise more responsive and sustainable social protection interventions to help your country weather the current health crisis and mitigate the longer-term social and economic impacts on the most vulnerable groups.
This program is aimed at a wide range of professionals working in social protection institutions, ministries, international organizations, social partners and civil society partners, tasked with designing and implementing social protection measures, particularly in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The following requirements are therefore essential to participate in the program: - the ability to use and access a computer with internet - working knowledge of written English Same country delegations are strongly encouraged to take part in the program, in order to support a systemic response to country-specific challenges.
