The methods used to identify the beneficiaries of programmes aiming to address persistent poverty and shocks are subject to frequent policy debates. Relying on panel data from Niger, this report simulates the performance of various targeting methods that are widely used by development and humanitarian actors. The methods include proxy-means testing (PMT), household economy analysis (HEA), geographical targeting, and combined methods.
This think piece was produced by the World Food Programme in collaboration with Oxford Policy Management and sets out a vision of how social protection can support households facing climate change in Latin America and the Caribbean. It shows how climate change presents distinctive challenges to social protection programming, often differing from those of other disasters and shocks. The paper sets out ten principles for social protection designers to consider in the context of climate change.
Slide presentation of the webinar held on 5 December 2019. Adaptive Social Protection is conceptualised as a series of measures aimed to build resilience of the poorest and most vulnerable people to climate change by combining elements of social protection, disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation (Arnall et al. 2010 cited in World Bank 2018).
Globally, the number, duration, and size of disasters and crises are on the rise. At the same time, the cost of emergency responses has been increasing, thus exerting further pressure on already limited resources. Concurrently, there is growing global recognition of the need to leverage existing resources to respond to shocks – as reflected in Grand Bargain commitments.
Adaptive Social Protection is conceptualised as a series of measures aimed to build resilience of the poorest and most vulnerable people to climate change by combining elements of social protection, disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation (Arnall et al. 2010 cited in World Bank 2018). PEPs are designed as labour-intensive infrastructure development initiatives aimed to provide cash transfers, food-based payments, livelihood generation, etc.
