Global Forum on
Adaptive Social Protection

Protecting lives and livelihoods
in times of crisis

13 – 15 June 2023 in Berlin / Online
Hosted by

We are living in an age of polycrisis. Extreme weather events such as droughts, floods and severe storms are compounding already intractable challenges – conflict and displacement, food insecurity, disease outbreaks and environmental degradation – in countries around the world. Social protection systems face an unprecedented challenge as they support households to prepare for, cope with and adapt to these multiple, overlapping crises. The demand for social protection has never been greater. Neither has the urgency to learn from others’ experiences. 

The Global Forum will provide an opportunity for policymakers, practitioners and social protection experts to jointly examine and discuss the scope and potential of Adaptive Social Protection (ASP) to foster resilience and promote adaptation. Focused on ASP’s four building blocks – programmes, data and information systems, finances and partnerships – the Forum aims to strengthen alliances for the expansion of social protection to more people around the globe.  

This website will be updated as the Forum’s programme evolves and speakers confirm their participation.
