This webinar will present the main findings of Asian Development Bank’s forthcoming publication, the ‘Social Protection Indicator in the Pacific’, specifically providing an analysis of data on social protection programmes in the 14 Pacific developing country members of ADB. The report has also special chapters on disability, COVID-19, and a forward-looking chapter for the Pacific region. The webinar aims to share the report’s findings widely, drawing lessons for how social protection in the Pacific can be supported and expanded.
