Socialprotection.org will be hosting a webinar Fiscal Space for Social Protection: Harmonization of contributory and non-contributory programmes, on 8 September, at 2pm–3pm (London). Stephen Kidd will also be on the panel.
The growing interest of practitioners combined with a context of global economic slowdown has resulted in the need for more evidence-based research and knowledge sharing opportunities in the area of financing social protection. The webinar is the second in the Fiscal Space for Social Protection: Knowledge Sharing Initiative Webinar Series, organised by the International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG) and HelpAge International, which aims to contribute towards fiscally sustainable social protection systems. It will cover the following topics: the coverage gap of old age social protection; contributory and non-contributory programmes (joining up schemes for system-wide effectiveness and sustainability) and extending social security to the informal economy.
