THE EVENT

The thematic focus of the Global Learning Lab (GLL) on Enhancing the Role of Social Protection in a Changing World of Work will be on the role of social protection in a world in which informality is and likely continues to be the predominant challenge to the ambition of adequate social protection and decent work for all. Global trends, digital transformation in particular, have the potential to drive different modalities of work, increasing the demand for flexibility on the labor market. In order to leave no one behind and to counter these global trends, social protection systems have to reflect the changing realities of the labor market.

Participation by invitation only!

    Session 1: Options for covering the informal sector
    (Plenary session)

    Objective:Designed as major block protecting against risks of loss if income in during work career and old age, predominant schemes of social insurance are built around the coverage of formal wage employment. Global drivers of disruption such as technological advances, climate change, globalization, and demographic changes are diversifying labor markets. To respond to this changing world of work, a mix of programs supporting formalization processes and the extension of social protection coverage to informal and self-employed workers is necessary. The session will present some of these experiences, share learning and discuss their possibilities to extend their scope and be applied in other countries.

    Session 2: Skills development targeted to self-employed and informal workers
    (Plenary Session)

    Objective: As main driver of the new economy, technological change will be a challenge to traditional jobs, but an opportunity for those who can adapt by developing the right skills which will be required for the newly created jobs and new forms of employment. Some groups of the population will be more exposed and therefore require the support of public policies. This will be typically the case of many workers in the informal economy and self-employed. The session will present some experiences of skills development programs in participant countries, share learning and discuss their possibilities to extend their scope and be applied in other countries.

    Session 3: Towards Universal Social Protection Systems: The role of contributory and non-contributory programmes for the informal sector
    (Plenary Session)

    Objective:As labor markets evolve, the limitations of traditional contributory Social Insurance to provide income protection coverage will increase. For lower income groups, the risk of becoming informal and poor will only be prevented with a mix of non-contributory and contributory benefits. Many countries today have non-contributory social or minimum benefits, and these programs are expected to continue playing an increasing role in addressing the challenges of the changing world of work. The session will present some of these experiences, share learning and discuss their possibilities to extend their scope and be applied in other countries.
