Francie Lund

Francie Lund Advisor, Emeritus Team Member
See her detailed Specialist Profile. Francie was the Director of the Social Protection Programme of WIEGO from 2000 until early 2016 and she is currently an Advisor. She is also a Senior Research Associate in the School of Built Environment and Development Studies at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban, South Africa. She trained as a sociologist and community organizer, and developed an abiding interest in social policy and social security issues. She is interested in understanding the effects of different forms of social assistance on poor households, and especially their effects for women and children in rural and informal areas. More recently she has been working on the link between women's paid and unpaid care work, and also on occupational health and safety for informal workers. She has worked as a research and policy consultant for a wide range of international organizations, and also for local, provincial and national government in South Africa. She chaired the Lund Committee on Child and Family Support. Convened after the transition to democracy in 1994, this resulted in a new form of cash support to poor children.

Earlier, our Social Protection Programme Director, Francie Lund, helped StreetNet develop its Platform.

Francie Lund, Director of WIEGO's Social Protection Programme, worked with StreetNet International in developing a booklet for advocacy around the global social floor: while essentially supportive of the idea of the floor, it also identifies specific needs and demands of informal workers in the area of social protection.
WIEGO was involved in two workshops in October regarding social protection and the global social floor in the southern African region. Both workshops were supported by Frederich Ebert Stiftung. Francie presented at the workshop on gender and social protection, held with the Southern African Development Community (SADC); Karin Pape presented at the workshop held with Southern African Trade Union Coordinating Council (SATUCC).
Participants - primarily government officials, and joined by Francie Lund - spent two nights and three days living with and working alongside market porters, market vendors, newspaper vendors, street vendors, and and waste pickers.
