Start Date: Status: Ongoing

Description

This project is a partnership between the IPC-IG and FAO Subregional Office for West Africa to develop a study aiming to take stock of the state of social protection schemes for agri-food system workers in the West Africa region. Furthermore, this project will detail selected country cases where good practices are identified through desk review and key informant interviews (KIIs), as well as create a space for dialogue (through a webinar) between UN agencies, international and regional organisations, national governments, and civil society to discuss how to enhance social protection for agri-food systems workers.
