Abstract

How can social protection help tackle the impacts of climate change and improve household and community resilience in developing countries? This article sets out the case for more climate‐responsive social‐protection systems, and proposes a design framework to achieve this. Four features can help, namely: scaleable and flexible programmes that can increase in response to climate disasters and then scale back as necessary; targeting that responds to climate events; livelihood enhancements; and building institutions for climate and disaster risk management.

Keywords: Social protection, climate change, adaptation, disasters, risk management
