Climate Change Adaptation, Disaster Risk Reduction and Social Protection

  • Comprehensive social protection that aims to prevent impoverishment – and protect, promote and transform livelihoods and social relations – provides significant opportunities to help people adapt to climate change.
  • Social protection policies and programmes need to consider climate change in order to effectively address the multiple risk and vulnerabilities faced by the poor and excluded.
  • Developing social protection approaches for climate change adaptation requires a rigorous evidence base and an improved understanding of social impacts and policy and implementation processes.
