Currently, the overall programme is being implemented in 18 partner countries.
The event will be opened by Ms Henriette Geiger, Director People and Peace in the Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development of the European Commission (DG DEVCO).
A high-level technical panel will be held with the participation of representatives of the partners engaged in the programme, followed by a discussion about the role of social protection during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, feeding into human development and the way forward.
