In the Research Report ''The potential of the platform to support policymaking and innovation on social protection'', authors Aline Peres, Ashleigh Slingsby and Mariana Balboni (IPC-IG) present an overview of the impact of the platform from September 2015 to December 2018. The aim is to analyse the progress of in fostering knowledge-sharing and capacity-strengthening for efficient social protection policies and programs. 
In the Working Paper ''HIV-inclusive and -sensitive cash transfer initiatives: evidence from high-prevalence countries in Eastern and Southern Africa'', Pedro Lara de Arruda (IPC-IG) discusses the potential of cash transfer programmes to combat HIV in sub-Saharan Africa. The study aims to summarise the main features of programmes that have proven to work best in the region, discussing the most likely causal pathways that link these programmes to desirable outcomes regarding HIV prevention and care.
A companion One Pager, "The potential role of social transfers in the fight against HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa", also by Mr. Arruda, presents the impacts of social protection policies designed to support the treatment of HIV and mitigate the disease’s poverty burden. The One Pager is also available in Portuguese.
In the One Pager "Worried about the fourth industrial revolution’s impact on jobs? Scale up skills development and training!", Terry McKinley (SOAS University of London) discusses the practical implications of the fast-approaching fourth industrial revolution, driven mainly by robotics and artificial intelligence, for social protection programmes. Also available in Arabic, French and Portuguese.
