    In 2020, the corona virus spread around the globe, and its containment measures resulted in unprecedented socio-economic impacts. ASEAN region’s economy is estimated to experience a decline between 3.5 and 4.7 per cent for 2020. The restrictions to contain the virus spread, although necessary, hit many households income, particularly of the most vulnerable. Yet other disasters have continued to hit the region. Convergence of the impacts of compounded shocks from multiple hazards, can push vulnerable households into deeper or prolonged deprivation and poverty. Social protection is a core part of the efforts to mitigate the impact of COVID-19, facilitate speedy recovery and strengthen the resilience of poor and vulnerable people. Governments have been rolling out social protection at an unprecedented scale in response to COVID-19. Well established social protection systems are an important part of any adequate crisis response. The COVID-19 pandemic is changing rapidly, while having immediate as well as medium- and long-term cumulative impacts on economies. Social protection has shown its relevance and positive impact in the initial phases of the crisis. The next phases, particularly during recovery to build back better, provide an opportunity to expand the role of social protection in a transition toward equitable, green and sustainable economies, while building more risk-informed, shock responsive and resilient social protection systems in ASEAN.

    Social Protection and COVID-19 response in rural areas 2020
    Also available in:

    Measures to contain the spread of COVID-19 include strong restrictions of movement which dramatically change daily lives and impact agricultural livelihoods. These measures are particularly difficult for the rural poorest and most vulnerable, who tend to hold jobs and occupations which cannot be performed remotely. Many of the world’s poor depend on public spaces and movement for their livelihoods, including seasonal agricultural work and travelling to markets to sell or buy produce and/or inputs, etc. This brief explains how social protection measures could shield the rural poor from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic while providing a series of social protection measures countries adopted around the world as a response to COVID-19.

    In 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic led to development and implementation of a 12-week e-coaching on social protection as a response to replace the Social Security Academy. In March-May 2021 ITC-ILO offers this e-Coaching programme for a third time. The E-coaching allows participants benefit from online resources on good practices and case studies, participate in interactive sessions led by highly qualified experts and access high-quality one to one e-coaching from world experts in social protection without the need to travel. It allows them to join and interact online with a global network of professionals to share learning, best practices as well as participate in peer coaching and support. Within this e-training initiative, FAO (as well as other partners, including UN sister agencies) is contributing by providing reading materials as well as videos on interesting case studies, and by participating in webinars and the one to one coaching component, thereby bringing in our special expertise on the exposures and challenges faced by the agricultural subsectors with regards to the pandemic. In addition, ITC-ILO will provide the participants with the e-campus platform for access to the materials and events, a coach matched to the participant’s needs and guidance for the coaching sessions, and administrative support to enable successful completion of the training programme.
