As individual members of the Online Community on Social Protection in Crisis Contexts on, we are launching a new initiative aimed at better collecting, disseminating, and reflecting on stories and practical insights from the field.
Going beyond Case Studies, Good Practices and Do’s & Don’ts already captured in guidance documents and webinars, we are looking for personal case stories of initiatives you were directly involved in (as a policymaker, field practitioner, donor, consultant, or else) that have generated breakthroughs or yielded valuable insights towards expanding social protection to crisis-affected populations.
These stories may be associated with a Covid-19 response or may not be. They may be related to social protection systems, or to humanitarian interventions linked to a national social protection system. They may be cases of:
  • Insightful failure, where a social protection response to a crisis, or a humanitarian intervention linked with a national social protection system, hasn’t gone as smoothly as you might have wished, but yield new insights worth sharing with peers;
  • Fruitful failure, where you and your team initially failed at what you had planned, but only to discover a new way of doing things for greater results;
  • Innovation, where you and your team managed to do things differently to expand social protection to often hard-to-reach crisis-affected populations.
We understand that some of these stories may not be easy to disseminate as is. This questionnaire gives you the opportunity to share them confidentially. If possible, we invite you to leave your contact details so that we may contact you for further information and follow-up. Your name or other identifiers will not be attached to the stories you will share so that your confidentiality can be maintained unless you explicitly allow us to do so. We also commit to anonymize your stories as needed.
We will kick off this initiative during Side Event 5 on ‘Fail Forward: Building foundations for innovation’ on Wednesday 7 October at 12:00 pm GMT, during the Global e-Conference on ‘Turning the COVID-19 crisis into an opportunity: What’s next for social protection?’ organized by on 5-8 October 2020.
Thanks in advance for your contributions and looking forward to exchanging with you!
