In 2015, the DFAT Social Protection Hub established a web-based social protection knowledge gateway, socialprotection.org to progress a G20 commitment to facilitate south-south learning on social protection policy and programming. DFAT established the gateway with UNDP’s International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth and it now also receives support from German Cooperation (GIZ).
socialprotection.org collates publications, hosts regular webinars, online discussion fora and communities of practice around specific topics. It also provides practical tools such as ‘how to’ guides and a glossary of social protection terms. It seeks to contribute to the global evidence base on social protection by sourcing, developing and sharing high quality research, evaluations and policy guidance.
The Social Protection Hub also partners with the Cash Learning Partnership to inject knowledge into regional and country level discussions on the use of cash transfers in humanitarian situations.
