Session recordings available here.

This thematic clinic provided an opportunity to discuss issues around the centrality of links between non-contributory (social assistance) and contributory (social insurance) elements of social protection systems, including on:
  • facilitating transitions between different schemes,
  • designing and implementing contributory schemes that provide for subsidized contributions or exemptions for those with low incomes,
  • measures to promote solidarity and risk-sharing and avoid fragmentation and exclusion,
  • broader policies and strategies that promote the extension of social security coverage to those in the informal economy; and
  • ensuring a gender-responsive and disability-inclusive approach.
'Clinic' sessions were an opportunity for participants to ask practical, technical questions on various topics that have been very relevant to the COVID social protection response. These were either answered 'live' or via a subsequent written discussion forum. The sessions were staffed and moderated by designated 'resource people' on that topic, but answers were provided by peers as well.

Designated resource people (across Clinic A and B, while also engaging on the Discussion Forum):
Laura Alfers, WIEGO and SPACE
Ludovico Carraro, OPM and SPACE
Nuno Cunha, ILO Bangkok
Jasmina Papa, ILO Moscow
Luca Pellerano, ILO Beirut

Moderators:
Christina Behrendt, ILO
Quynh Anh Nguyen, ILO
