In a global policy discussion that has focused mainly on high-income countries, the white paper shows how drivers of disruptions such as technology, economic integration, social and demographic changes, and climate change are impacting the nature of work in emerging and developing economies, and how the social protection components of the social contract in these countries need to change to help people manage risk and uncertainty.

This event will convene thought-leaders in a discussion around the need to restructure risk-sharing policies (safety nets, social security, worker protection and labor programs) to help people manage risk and uncertainty from the speed of technological change; shifts in trade policy and global value chains; social and demographic changes, etc. and protect them from impoverishing losses.
