Description


The paper discusses the role social protection can play in saving livelihoods while also enhancing the capacity of households to respond, cope and withstand threats and crises. It focuses on social protection's role in protracted crises and fragile and humanitarian contexts, as well as discussing the importance of shock-response systems, even in stable contexts. Challenges include system capacity neutrality and impartiality in conflict contexts, and ensuring sustainable financing.
