The degradation of environmental conditions has a significant impact on people’s direct lives, jobs, incomes and communities all across the globe. As a consensus in favor of the expansion of social protection has emerged over the last two decades, the question of how social and environmental protection systems could be combined is now to be posed. To what extent taking environmental protection into account may or may not represent an asset in terms of social development?
This link between social protection and environmental changes and policies is expected to become a growing policy area for intervention in South-East Asia. Many countries in the region are already experiencing major environmental changes. Climate change will, in most cases, reinforce these local disturbances. The question thus arises of how new frontiers in policymaking should take into consideration both social and environmental protection.
The purpose of this event is to explore and discuss the links between social protection and the environment in the Asean countries, especially in the Lower Mekong Region.
This event will be held on November 16, 2021 from 9:00 to 12:00 am (CET). Discussions will be held in English.
