CityNet signs MOU with Yonsei University IPAID for localizing SDGs

On 21st of June, CityNet signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Yonsei University Institute for Poverty Alleviation and International Development (IPAID) in order to collaborate in localizing SDGs.

IPAID was established on March 23, 2010 as a university-based research institution at Yonsei University engaging in multi-disciplinary global poverty alleviation policy research through forums, conferences, policy analysis, training, volunteer opportunities, scholar exchange programs, and the publication of the peer-reviewed scholarly journal, Asian Development Perspectives.

From CityNet side, it was attended by Secretary General Vijay Jagannathan, Director of Programs Youngmin Chang, Deputy Director of Programs Stephani Widorini, Program Officer Seunghyeon Han and Rina Hwang, and Technical Advisor Jonghyeon Lee.

While fighting the spread of #COVID19, countering measures like lockdowns and social distancing have affected informal workers disproportionately, who suffered from a higher risk of falling into extreme #poverty, as their economic activities were severely disrupted by those measures.

Informal workers usually work in poor occupational safety and health surroundings with poor access to social protection services. They are easily exposed to the risk of illness and injury. Even before the pandemic, access to healthcare was almost out of reach for these workers because the cost of such services was far too high for their earning.

This virtual event will discuss various approaches to social protection with a focus on informal workers in the pandemic situation, and explore how social protection can be applied in different contexts. Participants will be given an opportunity to share their own case studies and get engaged in designing #ActionPlans for better implementation of social protection strategies in line with their own national and local context.
