📣UNITAR CIFAL Jeju is holding a #VirtualWorkshop series on #SocialProtection, with a spotlight on #InformalWorkers. The event will take place on three sessions from March 18-25, at 3 PM KST.

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.
